Have you ever considered doing just about anything to distance yourself from a bratty little brother? How about building a cardboard spaceship to launch and function effectively in space? Genius older brother, Alex, designs the “Star Jumper” to do just that. His plan works perfectly until his little brother, Jonathan, catches him shrinking the garbage bag down to a tiny speck with his “Star Jumper” security device and micro-blaster. To keep Jonathan from telling his parents, Alex lets him try out the blaster. What a mistake! Read on to find out what happens when Jonathan experiments with the micro-blaster and other equally powerful devices.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards nominee, 2008-2009)
