Alex wants to build a space ship to go to the other side of the galaxy, far far away from little brother Jonathan. Using cardboard and junk he builds his space ship, space suit, and equipment. Jonathan is sure Alex is building something for him. When he finds out Alex is not, he is telling Mom. Alex must find a way to defeat Jonathan's evil deeds.
I laughed out loud at times. This story is told in the first person point-of-view which makes is so much more funny because Alex is throwing asides at the reader through the whole book. He is my kind of kid. I could place myself in Alex's shoes and feel exactly as he was feeling. I totally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
