Title: Sci-Fi Junior High | Authors: John Martin and Scott Seegert | Publication Date: February 21, 2017 | Publisher: Jimmy Patterson Books | Pages: 320 | Recommended Age: 8+
Presented by James Patterson’s new children’s imprint, this gleefully illustrated space adventure is a laugh on every page. That’s a lot of laughs!
Kelvin Klosmo isn’t just the new kid at school – he’s the new kid in the galaxy! Welcome to Sci-Fi Junior High: an inter-galactic space station with students of all shapes, sizes, smells, and… slime content. As the son of Earth’s two most famous geniuses, Kelvin isn’t just the smartest kid in the world….he’s the smartest kid in the UNIVERSE. At least, that’s what everybody at Sci-Fi Junior High thinks.
So, maybe Kelvin lied a little about being a genius to fit in. And maybe a mad scientist is about to take over the universe unless Kelvin can stop him. Maybe everyone is doomed.
Well, at least Kelvin won’t have to worry about math homework anymore.
Sci-Fi Junior High is an out-of-this-world story about friendship, accepting our differences, and the fight against evil… bunnies. Yes, evil bunnies – don’t ask.
The Buzz About the Book
“A diverse crew of extraterrestrial life forms [are] amusingly brought to life in Martin’s comic panels…. Echoes of comic books, Star Wars, and 1950s sci-fi classics resound.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
“Easily digestible segments, [and] sheaves of cartoons…are interspersed throughout the text, boosting the comedic action into even higher orbit. A crowd pleaser.” ~ Booklist
“A fun […] extraterrestrial adventure…. Punchy black-and-white spot illustrations and comics sequences appear throughout, playing up the slapstick humor.” ~ Publisher’s Weekly
“It’s a classic trope executed so funnily that it manages to seem fresh. Amusing black and white illustrations pepper the text. There’s plenty here to warrant another outing with Kelvin in a sequel.” ~ Center for Children’s Books
“SCI-FI JUNIOR HIGH is packed with not just galactic-scale laughs, but also genuine middle-school appeal. Saving the universe has never been so much fun!” ~ Gordon Korman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Masterminds, Swindle and The 39 Clues
