       Additional Information  
      This delightfully offbeat sequel to The Invasion of Planet Wampetter mixes dramatic action with alien foibles and ridiculous situations to produce a compelling mix of suspense, humor, and family drama. Kids will love the excitement of Gartrude and Eloise's adventures and the silliness of Wampetter ways; adults will appreciate the satiric look at contemporary culture from an alien perspective. This time, the Tub family is off to California. Albert Tub's smelly socks have triumphed over all other entrants in the Lemonfresh Scent of Mountain Air in the Morning in Springtime Amid Pine Trees contest, winning the family an all-expenses-paid trip from Planet Wampetter to California. What starts out as a lighthearted vacation turns into a serious mission when the Tubs are assigned the top-secret task of recovering the sacred Book of Jokes. Quirky and hip, the Wampetter adventures feature feisty girls as heroes, impart a strong sense of morality without being preachy, and explore family life with warmth and honesty.
