The Shivers family: Sonny, Mama, Papa, Grandma, and Grandpa are unusually flat and are living in a strange, dark and c-cold area, a highly unusual situation. There are blazing lights, abundant earthquakes, and monster hands reaching in and snatching parts of their new environment. First, cheesy square disappears then j-jelly. In a brave moment, Papa places himself in monster fingersí way and out goes egg valley, buttery cliff and Papa. The Shivers familyís worst fears are that Papa will never return and they are doomed to this cold life forever. Could they be right?  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards nominee, 2008-2009)
