Dethbert Jones is your average ten-year-old – only he lives on the
planet Crank with his pet chicken-snail and his robot best friend Andi
Social. When he and Andi join the Space Cadets, a Scouts-like
organization, they are totally smooshed at the prospect of going to
Space Camp where they’ll learn to pilot a real shuttlecraft and
disintegrate weapons of mass destruction. Blamtastic!
To earn his cosmic correspondent badge, Dethbert begins writing to an earthling – and boy, does he have a lot to write about! Between questions about Earth food, culture, and activities, Dethbert recounts his experiences attempting to avoid his horrible little sister, impress his animal-obsessed crush, and fly a space shuttle. Misadventures – from hairy ankles to crash landings – abound, but Dethbert’s curiosity and enthusiasm can’t be crushed, not by anything in this galaxy, anyway!
