KIRKUS REVIEW

Freddy will be the first to say he screws things up…well, not the first—that would be Babette, his evil older sister. She delights in comparing her perfect report cards to Freddy’s less-than-perfect ones by doing dramatic readings at dinner. In order to get to the newest report cards first, Freddy prepares a terrifying belch-symphony for Babette. Unbeknownst to any of the family, this draws extraterrestrial attention. One night they are abducted from their beds and zipped away to the planet Flurb, where retiring King Wormola has appointed Freddy his successor…much to royal wizard Wizbad’s (not to mention Babette’s) chagrin. Can Freddy survive the worshipful adoration of the bizarre Flurbians—not to mention a planet where the buildings are alive, his second-in-command wants him dead and laughter is prized above even Yootleturds? Hannan, author of the Super Goofballs series and creator of Nickelodeon’s animated series CatDog, kicks off a new series of absurdly snarky and gross middle-grade novels aimed at those who don’t like to read but love a good burp joke. Useful, if not for every reader. (Science fiction/humor. 6-10)
