Book Description

The Cheeseman family is back from back in time. In other words, they're in the present time. Well, presently, at least. They're soon to journey back again -- only just a few years this time -- to save the life of their beloved mother. But when they get to the not-so-distant-past, they meet something utterly surprising. Something wilder than anything they've seen before -- including cowboy poets and good-natured pirates. They are about to meet... The alternate versions of themselves!

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–6—In the third and final story featuring the Cheeseman family, Ethan and his children, Jason, Catherine, and Simon, use their time machine to travel backwards and forwards on the time arc, trying to save their mother's life. This title picks up where the previous two, A Whole Nother Story and Another Whole Nother Story, left off, so readers who are familiar with events in these titles will have an easier time keeping track of the action and the characters' histories. Narrator Dick Hill's tone and expression are a perfect match for the book's witty humor. Using different voices and accents for each character, he captures all of the story's action and emotion. Though the plot is occasionally a bit meandering, this is an entertaining tale that will appeal to middle-grade listeners, especially those looking for a laugh.—Anne Bozievich, Friendship Elementary School, Glen Rock, PA

About the Author

Before becoming an author and advisor, Dr. Cuthbert Soup held many other fun and rewarding jobs. For a brief time he worked at the mall as a smoke detector but was eventually replaced by a machine. A talented musician, he then moved to New York City and landed a gig playing elevator music. He was fired, however, when his trombone kept smacking other people in the elevator. Currently the founder and president of the National Center for Unsolicited Advice, Dr. Soup resides in a semisecret location with his dog, Kevin, and his two pet snails, Gooey and Squishy. In his spare time he enjoys cajoling, sneering, and practicing the trombone in crowded areas. This is his first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whole Nother Book of Fun October 27, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This series of books just gets better. My daughter (age 15) made me pre-order this book because she had to have it the minute it came out. The cast of characters in this book is the same as the previous and just as hilarious. Steve the sock puppet (who wanted a paper route in the previous book) is still full of hilarious sayings as he accompanies his family on new adventures. This book is great for all ages, from 5-95. We have read it aloud around the kitchen table and laughed until we hurt! I highly recommend this book for all households, all ages, boys and girls alike.

My 11 year old loves these books. We were introduced to these by finding the first book at the reading program at our library. She chose it as her prize. I think she has read it more than 10 times since. Each time the new book comes out she gets excited, and buys it with her birthday money. She did like this one, but she and my other daughters agreed it just was not as good and the first or second. It still is good, in that it wraps up the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series!! October 26, 2012
It is nice to look at the title of a book and immediately know this is the last book in the series! I love the humor, totally LOL. I also like the action and adventure. I had wondered how the plot was going to be pulled off but I thought it had a great ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and hilarious, a book (series) unlike any other! November 20, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The last book in the hilarious Dr. Soup adventure series is a superb read. Anyone, of any age will laugh out loud (repeatedly!) throughout this story. No Other Story is full of adventure and interspersed with bits of hilarious advice from Dr. Soup himself. Looking for a unique gift? This book it is a perfect pick for 9-12 year olds who are looking for a book series that is unlike any other with a great story and A LOT of laughs! "But that my friends is a whole nother story".

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as first two, but still a fun read-aloud February 17, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read this aloud to 4 children, aged 7-13. We all enjoyed it. I judge how well a book is working on my "audience" by how many "please, read one more chapter" requests I receive. By that measure, this book was remarkably successful. We would recommend it to others who have read and enjoyed the first two books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very clever series that kids should be gobbling up January 3, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It baffles me that there are only 7 reviews before me. After reading the first two books aloud to my 9-year-old (who then read them about 20 times herself), I was *thrilled* to give this to her for Christmas and she was just as thrilled to get it. It was definitely the highlight of our Christmas vacation. The suspense is fanastic and the characters are all positive, smart brave people. (Ok, maybe not Gurda the Neanderthal, but she's got a great sense of humor!)

The only "con" is that in this third volume, I found some of the jokes to be wearing a bit thin, but the plot is so fun we were happy to overlook that. The 2nd volume remains my favorite, but my daughter actually liked this one best. The chase scene at the end is fantastic and really fun to read aloud.

As a parent, one of my favorite things about this series is that the author doesn't "dumb down" the book. There are several advanced vocabulary words for even the best readers to learn. As an editor, I was very impressed by the care with which words were chosen for all three books. The descriptions are precise and vivid. The action is packed with energy. Teachers could pick many sections to use as examples of strong writing in the classroom.

The fact that this is not more popular suggests that the author has a crummy marketing team. It is certainly not a reflection of the work. I hope more teachers and librarians jump on the bandwagon and start steering kids to this laugh-out-loud, warm-hearted series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bow too neatly tied August 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No Other Story is the third installment of Gerry Swallow's three-book series about a family on the run after inventing a time machine. I couldn't wait to read it after having heartily enjoyed the whacky, whimsical and wickedly inventive first two stories. No Other Story got off on the right foot (or sock puppet), but then too quickly and cleanly tied up all of the strands, almost as if Swallow wanted to be doing something else. In so doing, his fun, intelligent and mostly good smelling characters tended to come off a little too flat or two dimensional. All in all, it was an enjoyable read, but not quite up to the high level of the first two.
