The prospect of a black hole swallowing Earth pitches a middle-schooler into a round of frantic antics involving teleporting lizards, hostile Galactics, the FBI, several sisters with unusual powers and abilities, and a certain locket-shaped portal to extra-dimensional space-time thought destroyed in the previous episode, How to Sell Your Family to the Aliens (2018). Happy Conklin, Jr., is used to challengesâhe's not even a teenager yet and he already has to cope with the necessity of shaving three times a day, thanks to an experiment of his inventor dad'sâbut even with the help of his sister Kayla, who can see into various futures, keeping both the locket and his strangely gifted lizard, Squeep!, out of the clutches of his mega- and kleptomaniacal sister Alice, not to mention saving the planet, is a tall order. Noth, a New Yorker cartoonist, strews Happy's nonstop narrative with droll ink-and-wash vignettes on the way to a climactic twist. Familiarity with the opener will give readers a better feel for the characters and overall arc of this wonderfully goofy sequel. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
