by Bransford, NathanJennings, Christopher

This clever and funny middle-grade science fiction novel follows Jacob Wonderbar, who has been the bane of every substitute teacher at Magellan Middle School ever since his dad moved away from home. He never would have survived without his best friend Dexter, even if he is a little timid, and his cute-but-tough friend Sarah Daisy, who is chronically overscheduled.

But when the trio meets a mysterious man in silver one night they trade a corn dog for his sassy spaceship and blast off into the great unknown. That is, until they break the universe in a giant space kapow and a nefarious space buccaneer named Mick Cracken maroons Jacob and Dexter on a tiny planet that smells like burp-breath. The friends have to work together to make it back to their little street where the houses look the same, even as Earth seems farther and farther away.
