Ignatius MacFarland: Frequenaut!
After being teased one too many times at school, 12 year-old Ignatius MacFarland decides to build a rocket. Maybe extraterrestrials are nicer than his classmates! But instead of landing in outer space, Ignatius ends up in another frequency ruled by bitter former English teacher, Chester Arthur. Mr. Arthur has taken the advancements from our world and passed them off as his own, so everyone in the frequency thinks he's a genius. It's up to Iggy and Karen, another trapped earthling, to expose Mr. Arthur for the fraud that he is—and to hopefully make it home alive.
Ignatius MacFarland: Frequency Freak-Out!
Think the first frequency was as weird as it gets? Think again! In this action-packed follow-up to Ignatius MacFarland: Frequenaut!, 12-year-old Iggy and Karen find themselves stranded again when their transporter takes a crash landing in a new and even weirder frequency than before. And you have to have really bad luck for that to happen twice! This time around, Iggy will have to deal with more than just bullies and bad cafeteria food. Try a crazed English teacher turned dictator, larger-than-life-sized trees, and talking plant creatures. Will karate kicks and sweet talk be enough to get Iggy and Karen home alive?
