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.

Our customer reviews

Alex wants to spend his summer playing video games, but his parents have other plans. They\'ve built a (babyish) jungle gym and set up a play date with nerdy science kid, Herbert. Herbert has spent his summer building a Negative Energy Densifier Suit. When the suits are worn by the boys on Alex\'s new jungle gym, they open a wormhole to the future. Only in this future, aliens called G\'daliens have taken over. They all seem friendly enough, except for GOR-DON, who wants the boys destroyed. Now it\'s up to Alex and Herbert to save the future. I loved HERBERT\'S WORMHOLE. It\'s the perfect blend of cartoons and novel that readers of all ages will be sure to enjoy. The story is fast-paced and reads like an adventure/science fiction novel, but even if you\'re not typically a fan of those genres, I would try picking this one up. It\'s so full of humor, you\'ll be laughing the whole time. I would give this to any reader who is looking for something to hold them over until the next DIARY OF A WIMPY KID book is released. Soon, they\'ll be asking for more adventures of Herbert and Alex.show more
