Funny science fiction. This
book lets you step out of viewing Earth as the center of the Universe.
What about the notion that the mice on this planet have been working for
10 million years to get humans organized enough to form a carbon based
computer (our collective brains) in order to come up with the ultimate
question of the universe -- the answer to which they already know. The
atmosphere is low-keyed -- an earthman going along for the ride with a
seasoned galaxy bum -- hitchhiking for the fun of updating his hitchhiker's
guide -- the entry under habitation on Earth.
If you like books that are
weird, funny, and adventurous this is a book for you.
Arthur Dent wakes up to see
a bulldozer out side his window ten minuets later he is lying down in front
of it trying to save his house. Little does he know that the whole earth
is about to be destroyed by a Volgon Destructor fleet. Arthur's friend
who happens to be an alien from the vicinity of Beetle Juice, helps him
escape earth. Together they're off on a weird and crazy adventure through,
the galaxy, with only the Hitchhiker's Guide and a few towels to keep them
Will they find a place they
can call home? To find out you'll have to read the Hitchhikers guide to
the galaxy. (Josh L., student 5th grade)
