“A Whole Nother Story will keep you smiling, laughing, and totally on your toes from cover to cover. The Cheeseman family will take you in and drag you along on their unfortunate adventures, which include; sock puppets, chimps, time-travel machines, and hairless psych dogs. My unsolicited advice: Read it in one sitting, laugh and beg for the next book in the series”
-- Becky Anderson, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL


Description

The three Cheeseman children, their father, and their psychic dog are all on the run. From whom? Well the CIA, naturally. But also corporate agents #5, #29, and # 207, plus two international superspies -- one of whom happens to be a chimpanzee. They all want Dr. Cheeseman and his late wife's greatest invention–a machine with unspeakable powers–OK, I'll say it. It's a time machine. But it's not working right yet, so put all ideas of time travel out of your head.

Instead, please enjoy this high stakes, high action, hijinx-filled chase, and the bizarre characters our Cheeseman friends will meet as they protect not just their parents' invention, but their mother's sacred memory. It's an adventure novel like no other.

Oh yeah, and did we mention the entertaining, plot-exposition filled, unsolicited advice you'll receive along the way? So you didn't ask for it? Yeah, that's why it's unsolicited.

Unsolicited Advice #1: Read this book.




About the Author
Before becoming an author and advisor, Dr. Cuthbert Soup held many other fun and rewarding jobs. For a brief time he worked at the mall as a smoke detector but was eventually replaced by a machine. A talented musician, he then moved to New York City and landed a gig playing elevator music. He was fired, however, when his trombone kept smacking other people in the elevator. Currently the founder and president of the National Center for Unsolicited Advice, Dr. Soup resides in a semisecret location with his dog, Kevin, and his two pet snails, Gooey and Squishy. In his spare time he enjoys cajoling, sneering, and practicing the trombone in crowded areas. This is his first book.

Jeffrey Stewart Timmins was born July 2, 1979. In 2003, he graduated from the Classical Animation program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. He currently works as a freelance designer and animator. Even as an adult, Timmins still holds onto a few important items from his childhood, such as his rubber boots, cape, and lenseless sunglasses.
