After being teased one too many times, Ignatius MacFarland decides to build a rocket. Maybe extraterrestrials are nicer than his classmates! But when his rocket takes an explosive wrong turn, Ignatius ends up in another frequency run by former English-teacher-turned-dictator, Chester Arthur.

Mr. Arthur has taken the art, culture, and advancements of our world, shared them with this new frequency, and convinced the creatures around him that he's a genius. It's up to Iggy and Karen, another trapped frequenaut, to expose Mr. Arthur for the fraud that he is - and to hopefully make it home alive.

Part comedy, part science fiction, and part fantasy, this debut novel makes being a geek, well, kind of cool. Download and start listening now!

    " From the writer of Freaks & Geeks--great for tween guys. Ignatius, sick of being bullied, builds a rocketship in hopes of escaping to outer space. Not being an expert rocketship builder, he instead sends himself to a different frequency in the same spot, populated by strange creatures seemingly controlled by--a teacher from Ignatius' school? A sci fi/fantasy adventure with lots of fart jokes. "

    " I'm a big fan of Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Kick Me, Superstud), but this book came off as very average compared to his other work - it lacked all the humour and strong characters I'd come to expect, and seemed very formulaic. "

    " You don't even have to visit another frequency to see how amazing this book is. This is one of the best 300+-paged novels I've ever read. It has dense humor, picturesque writing abilities and perspectives, and it has lots of scenic drama that makes the book that more intensifying and exciting to read. Ignatius is one of those books that fall under the radar but actually have lots of quality and shining elements. And I'm glad I was able to walk on this moon and discover this frequency's intelligent life. (In case you're confused, that's metaphorically speaking.) I once described as Hugo Cabret as this: "...knocks me down, helps me up, and then knocks me down again, and only few have ever done this kind of trick on me." Well, Ignatius is one of those few. The only shortcoming this book had--what, do you think I'd stay in the bright side?--was that it didn't properly define its scenery. When I came back to the book while I was reading it, I had lots of trouble trying to remember where I was in the story. Kinda like with--oh, let's save that for another review. Also, even while I am reading it, the book's scenarios are still very incomprehensible. But then again, this story is mainly at another frequency. But still, just because you have matchless theme doesn't mean you have matchless plot lining. "
