Publisher's Summary

What sort of madman would unleash an army of stilt-walking, laser-beaming, thoroughly angry whales upon the world? Who cares! All that matters is that his dastardly plan be foiled. Lucky for Lily Gefelty, her two best friends are the intrepid stars of their own middle-grade series novels: Jasper Dash (better know as the Boy Technonaut) and Katie Mulligan (beloved by millions as the heroine of the Horror Hollow series). It's going to take all their smarts to stop this insane, inane plot from succeeding.

What the Critics Say

"Goosebumps fans and readers who get Lemony Snicket's brand of humor will be rolling in the aisles." (Booklist)
"Readers who have graduated from Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants or who know their Lemony Snickets, should love this first title in a new series. It's full of witty pokes at other series novels and Jasper's nutty inventions." (School Library Journal)

    "Didn't like all the ads"

    Yes. There are lots of very long, boring ads for other books by the same author or publisher. It was really amazing. They were placed right in the middle of the story in 2-3 places. Just when something is about to happen to the main character the next second the narator is going on and on about 50 other books you could buy. We lowered the sound for about 10-15 minutes while they went on and on. As for the story, my 7 year-old boy liked it but lost interest during the ads. I would not reccomend it.
