A quirky end to a very quirky series. Good for fans of Brixton Brothers mysteries. Start with "Whales on Stilts."

ChristchurchLib Dec 21, 2015

"Jasper Dash, Boy Technonaut, is the hero of a thrilling science fiction series from the 1930s… a series that nobody reads anymore. Feeling discouraged, Jasper (who's still 13 years old in the modern day) beams himself to the Horsehead Nebula, where he hopes to find his missing father. Instead, he finds an alien creature with plans for galactic domination. As Jasper and his friends Katie and Lily try to save the universe, an entirely different story -- about Busby, a 1940s-era fan of Jasper's -- takes place in the footnotes. This is the 6th (and final) book in the Pals in Peril series; to catch the clever, side-splitting adventures from the beginning, start with Whales on Stilts."

Jasper is joined by Katie Mulligan and Lily Gefelty for another absurd adventure through time and space. This time, Jasper’s teleporter takes them deep within the Horsehead Nebula, the area of space that contains the secret of Jasper’s origins. Mysterious extraterrestrials travel the globe, abducting random civilians to ask them one question: “Where is Jasper Dash?” Meanwhile, in the footnotes, young Busby Spence reads classic Jasper Dash adventure novels and longs for the return of his own father, fighting in the Pacific theater during World War II. Anderson’s creative mixture of otherworldly adventure and heartfelt emotion is flawless. Nostalgic, hopeful and most importantly playful, the author has crafted a work that expresses all the pleasures of being young and getting lost in the realms of a great book. The novel doesn’t transcend the wacky sci-fi of old that inspired it but rather embraces it and dissects it, celebrating it and exploring why so many people fell in love with these silly worlds and gee-whiz heroes in the first place. Above all, this is a testament to the art of reading, a book that reminds you why you love reading in the first place.
