By Dr. Cuthbert Soup
A Whole Nother Story is straight out hilarious. It is about an inventor, Ethan Cheeseman, and his 3 kids: Maggie, a great archer, Gerard, a weird 8-year old who collects dirt clods, Jough, a pitcher who can throw a monster screwball, a sock puppet named Steve who is very important, and Pinky, a dog who can sense danger.
In this book Ethan invents a time machine with his wife Olivia. The CIA is out to get it, so they kill Olivia. Before she died, she wrote the code for the LVR [time machine] but, unfortunately, it got split in half. Ethan could only find one of the halves. They are a nomadic family because they are always being chased, so the talented kids can never be normal or have any friends. Along the way, they meet friends like Jibby and his carnival gang and the poetic cowboy Buck Weston. Will Ethan find the other half of the paper or will the CIA get to it first?
This is Dr. Cuthbert Soup’s first book and the sequel is Another Whole Nother Story. I would read any of his new books because he is a hysterical author. I seriously recommend this book.
