Herbert Slewg and his hapless, video game–addicted neighbor Alex Filby have stumbled upon what Einstein could only theorize about: a wormhole through the space/time continuum. They travel 100 years into the future of their no-longer-boring town and are mistaken for alien slayers . . . in a world run by a benevolent alien race with cheerful Australian accents and uncomfortably fake facial hair. Herbert, Alex, and their mutual crush, Sammi Clementine, century-hop across time in order to outwit a disgruntled “G’Dalien. By foiling his evil plot, they save the planet and become 22nd-century hometown heroes in this smart-alecky (but friendly), inventive, wry, and very visual creation.

    " Just not sure what to make of this one. It's too long and vocabualry-filled to be a low level reader; too inane to be valid sci-fi literature. "

    " Alittle slow and I didn't really like any of the characters (except Sammi). Hope there isn't a sequel. "

    " 3.5....not the best, but certainly not the worst I've read lately "

    " This was a cute book. I can definitely see the boy appeal. I thought the illustrations were a great plus, although it's a tad long to be considered a quick read. "

About the Author
Author Peter Nelson

Peter Nelson is a screenwriter who lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Diane, and their two sons, Charlie and Christopher. He grew up in New England, where he made up weird stories and invented strange games for the enjoyment of his two younger brothers. They’ve never forgiven him for it.  Herbert’s Wormhole was Peter’s first children’s book, and he wrote it without ever having met an actual alien or traveling through time, which made it a bit more challenging, but just as fun.
