Ignatius MacFarland: Frequenaut!

By Paul Feig (Trade Paperback, 2009)
Ever thought of traveling to another frequency?

Neither did Ignatius MacFarland.

It just sort of happened.

After being teased one too many times at school, Ignatius MacFarland decides to build a getaway rocket with the hope that extraterrestrials might be nicer than his classmates! But instead of landing in outer space, Ignatius finds himself stranded in another frequency filled with all sorts of weird creatures, which is shockingly run by former English teacher turned dictator, Mr. Arthur. It's up to Iggy and Karen, another trapped earthling, to expose Mr. Arthur for the fraud that he is-and hopefully to make it home alive.

  • Praise for Ignatius MacFarland: Frequenaut!
    "A good deal of laughs in this goofy, proudly uncool story." -Booklist

    "The simple explanations of sarcasm, evolution, and traveling to other frequencies are appropriate for the youngest teen." -VOYA

    "This blend of fantasy and science fiction will please male fans of either genre, who will start asking for a sequel even as the cover closes." -Kirkus

    "The unfortunately named Ignatius MacFarland...would do anything to get away from his tormentors at school, who have dubbed him "Piggy MacFartland." But his dream of living among aliens in outer space turns into a scary trip.." -SLJ

    Praise for Superstud
    "It bodes well that the dedication to this book is laugh-out-loud funny, and indeed, Feig does not disappoint in this comedic tale."-PW

    "Just as he did in Kick Me, Feig perfectly captures the whimsy and tone of adolescent reasoning."-Booklist 

    Praise for Kick Me
    "These interlocking essays on everything from a sadistic gym teacher and geeky after-class pastimes to obsessive romantic tendencies and a prom that wasn't the best night of the author's life are terrifically entertaining"-PW
