Frozen woodchucks are attacking the galaxy! But they're no match for Jimmy and his crew of space travelers . . . or are they?

Meet our heroes:

Jimmy Weathers
An average fifth grader living in New York City who never suspected that the fate of the world would be resting squarely on his ten-year-old shoulders.

William H. Taft V
Jimmy's best friend—the great-great-great-great-nephew of the fattest man who was ever president.

Janice Claytooth
A ten-year-old rocket scientist whose bestselling book Light Speed and You has sold only one copy on earth but millions throughout the galaxy.

Imogene Weathers
A feisty two-year-old inventor with a penchant for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Will this unlikely quartet discover the mastermind behind the frozen woodchuck attacks before it's too late?

About the author (2010)

Dan Elish is the insanely gifted author of many novels for both adults and children, including The Attack of the Frozen Woodchucks, 13 (based on the Broadway musical), and The Worldwide Dessert Contest.

When he's not busy typing furiously away on his Lap-Top (not a Gum-Top or a Hat-Top or even a Balloon-Top), you can find Dan in New York City, where he lives with his wife, Andrea, and daughter, Cassie, and son, John.
