Overview

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.”

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
