    Boundless self-confidence gets a lad into outer space and back again in this kickoff episode from the creator of the Franny K. Stein series. Truly a legend in his own mind, Victor flirts with his teacher Mrs. Nozzleburp, concocts a beauty formula from kitchen ingredients that forcibly curls hair (and, as it turns out, tentacles), and borrows his friend Patti's video game after (incorrectly) proclaiming he's an expert in Interspace Battle Strategy. Unfortunately, alien Grooglings overhear this last part and kidnap him to lead a fight against long-time foes the Frappletonians. Fortunately, with help from Patti, his formula, and the unusually talented butt of his duck sidekick, Dumpylumps, Victor not only brokers peace between the warring aliens but, with a picture of Mrs. Nozzleburp ("She's gorgeous," his captor rhapsodizes. "From her woolly head to her majestically flapping elbow meat"), persuades the Grooglings to beg for makeovers. Cartoon illustrations (several featuring figures in provocative poses) add further notes of hilarity to this zany outing for the Captain Underpants crowd. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Jim Benton is an award-winning author and artist. You may know some of the other things he’s made, like It’s Happy Bunny, Dear Dumb Diary, Franny K. Stein, Victor Shmud, and more. He’s created a TV series, written books, and produced a movie, and he always did everything his parents told him to do. Pretty much.
