D.O.R.X.
How Captain Dweezil Saved the Querx Galaxy and Still Made It Home in Time for Lunch 
 

Welcome to the Querx Galaxy. 146,254,366,999 light years from Earth – and we should hope it stays that way. That’s because the thousands of alien species in the Querx Galaxy don’t quite get along. They need help. They need a guiding hand. They need… Captain Dweezil and the D.O.R.X.! Yes, the Captain Dweezil who took on the entire army of Lorzak 8 using only one tribno-blaster… who overcame the teeming hordes of Plort by fashioning a jet pack out of a can of velblot beans… and who freed the Wadlobian Ambassador from the one-eyed Blot and got home in time for lunch! (He really likes lunch.) But now the Captain and his merry band of D.O.R.X. must meet their biggest challenge yet: saving the galaxy from a massive batch of Zortlax paste gone bad, sent out by the evil Snerts! Will the D.O.R.X. be up to the task… or will everybody’s favorite condiment lead to the destruction of the Querx Galaxy itself?!

Soon to be hilariously illustrated, this middle grade chapter book is a comic romp full of action and adventure for any reader - children, tweens, teens... and beyond!

Nine-year-old Peter Dunlap doesn’t particularly like his family’s new house.

HughTube
The story of one middle school kid's desperate attempt to get a clue

 

14-year-old Hugh Hollenbeck doesn’t get it. What doesn’t he get? Just about everything. That’s why he walks around with a little camera attached to his glasses that records his entire life. Then he watches it all later to try to figure out the things he didn’t get before – which, as you’ll recall, is just about everything – and he makes a weekly video blog for all to see.

 

Unfortunately, Hugh’s cluelessness leads him to run for Student Council President. Even his little sister knows that this school election thing is just “not him”, but Hugh, as always, has to find out the hard way. At least Hugh’s campaign gets him the attention of the very confident, very pretty – and very intimidating – Molly MacLaine. But will Molly be able to help Hugh survive his disastrous campaign, or will he crash and burn… and bring the whole school down with him?

 

If you like the Middle School series and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you’ll love HughTube. This book is for anybody who’s ever been baffled by the secrets, contradictions and unwritten rules of middle school. Tweens and teens will easily relate to the comic mishaps of our hapless hero. This funny coming of age, middle grade story is the first in a series, so if you like it, there's more to come!
