Description

A hilarious new illustrated middle grade science fiction series for elementary school readers and fans of Captain Underpants!
Iggy Loomis is the weirdest little brother ever and he s a huge pain in his older brother Daniel s you-know-what. But when Daniel befriends Alistair, his new next-door-neighbor, Iggy gets much, much weirder. Little does Daniel know Alistair is really an"alien." When Iggy thinks he s eating Alistair s candy, he s actually eating chemically-coated insects. Yuck! Soon Iggy s DNA starts to mutate, and Daniel and Alistair have to keep Iggy s new superpowers from manifesting before"everyone"gets in trouble.
Piles on the yuks . It doesn't take psychic powers to see how this could be a crowd pleaser.
Kirkus Reviews
Allison creates a comically put-upon older brother in Daniel in a lighthearted story that captures the chaos of everyday family life, superpowers or not.

Publishers Weekly
Praise and Accolaides for Jennifer Allison's"Gilda Joyce"series:
* "Allison's debut novel introduces a spunky, appealingly eccentric 13-year-old who identifies with Harriet the Spy and may well rival her for readers' affections." "Publishers Weekly," starred review
* "Will make readers giggle out loud." "School Library Journal," starred review
* "[Allison] not only offers a credible mystery...but also, by allowing readers inside the heads of both girls, provides particularly strong characterizations much more substantial than the ubiquitous first-person narrative would have offered." "Booklist," starred review
