Description

The plan was simple. Ethan Cheeseman, along with his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children, would travel back in time to end a family curse and save their mother. Now that the LVR (a super-secret time machine) is working, it's easy peasy. Except they didn't account for one basic rule of science: Murphy's Law-if something can go wrong, it will.

The LVR crashes, with a meteor-sized hole in its roof. They've made it to 1668, but they're stuck in the middle of nowhere, without a way back home, and someone thinks they're weetches-er, witches. Could it get any worse? How about when they encounter a pirate ship, a haunted castle, and two mysterious visitors-one there to rescue the family, the other, mmm...not so much.

Our trusty narrator, Dr. Soup, has a ton of unsolicited advice for listeners but not a lot to say to help the Cheesemans. Just this one thing:

GOOD LUCK.

    •This book tells the story of a scientist and his three children who travel back in time to end a family curse and save their mother. Unfortunately, the time machine breaks and they're stuck in 1668, where they have a variety of bizarre adventures in their quest to return home. This fantasy book was very funny and I think that fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders would really enjoy it. The plotline and characters are ridiculous, but I mean that in the best sense possible. Students could read this book during SSR and it could be a fun read-aloud book for the class. I would advise readers to read Dr. Cuthbert Soup's A Whole Nother Story before reading this sequel, though. I did not initially realize that Another Whole Nother Story is the second in a series and it took a bit of time to understand why these wacky events were taking place.

    Starting where the first book left off, Ethan Cheeseman and his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children are traveling back in time to the year 1668 to stop an ancient family curse and save their mother. To do so, they’ll need the help of a group of misfit circus performer/pirates to return a cursed goblet to the rightful owner, the ruler of Denmark. Easy, right? Wrong. Their landing in 1668 is nothing short of bumpy and the time machine needs repairs. To succeed in stopping the curse and repairing the time machine, the misfits set out to restore the goblet while the Cheesmans fix their ride home. The situation only gets worse when the family’s archenemy reappears to destroy them. Having thought they left him tied up in the back of school bus for police, the family doesn’t recognize the now 15 years older and more cunning Mr. Five, Mrs. Cheeseman’s murderer. Well-disguised as an assistant to a friend and former professor of Ethan’s, he is in the perfectly place to carry out his unknown dastardly plans. Will the Cheesemans break the curse? Will they figure out who Mr. Five is before it is too late?ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is a funny, quick read for fans of time travel. The characters are well-developed and even more charming than the first book. The plot is well-developed and fairly fast-paced. With a sock puppet that says funny, sometimes impolite comments, a really cute tour guide that the oldest male Cheeseman child, Chip, make a fool of himself , and other antics that reader will never expect, this book is a great addition to any collection. Just make sure to read WHOLE NOTHER STORY first.

    Ethan Cheeseman and his his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children are on the run from evil organizations, spies, secret governement agencies,and more. Why you ask? Because their father, Ethan has invented a time machine in order to go back in time to save his wife from being murdered by those evil people who are chasing them. In the wrong hands, the time machine could be dangerous, even deadly. To make matters worse, it hasn't been working right since they started on the run. Can Ethan fix the time machine and keep his family safe? Will he ever be able to go back in time to save his wife?A funny adventure for fantasy fans. The characters are entertaining and likable. The plot is unique and interesting enough to hold the reader's interest. Readers who slapstick humor mixed in with adventure, fantasy, spies, and action will enjoy reading this book.

    From Pinky the hairless dog to Steve the sock puppet, the characters are hilarious, and the plot is just zany enough to lure in reluctant readers. I read this one with my 9 year old son (who isn't a great book-lover) and my 11 year old daughter (who will read anything she can get her hands on), and both laughed out loud all the way through. This is one of those books that parents can read to their kids and enjoy them as much as the kids do. Ethan Cheeseman and his three children are on the run. Ethan has invented a time travel machine and both the government and corporate spies are out to get the plans and the family behind it. The kids choose new names each time they have to escape, and each kid tries to outdo the others with more and more outlandish name inventions. The children's mother has been poisoned by villains seeking the time machine (LVR), but with the LVR in tow there's constant hope that the family will be able to go back in time and rescue her before the dastardly deed is done. Along the way they run into time traveling pirates hosting a circus show, and a tense ending will leave kids begging for more. Fortunately, there's a sequel, aptly titled, "Another Whole Nother Story." But then, that's Another Whole Nother review too.

    This book had me laughing out loud so often, I had to leave the room to keep my family from giving me strange looks. Loved it!
  • (5/5)
    Loved this! Great fun to read. Definitely a recommendation for fans of A Series of Unfortunate Events (among the youngsters) and fans of sci-fi/fantasy humor authors like Pratchett or Holt (for the older crowd... including adults).
  • (4/5)
    This was a quick read and very much like the Unfortunate events series and Terces society books. I enjoyed the story and the wit. I can't wait for the second one, it was left as a cliffhanger. The author narrating directly to the reader along with quips of hilarious advice, makes this a book children will want to finish.
  • (4/5)
    Fun read in the same style as Series of Unfortunate Events (in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Lemony Snickett and Dr. Cuthbert Soup were one and the same). In this book, the Cheeseman family is on the run from government agents, spies, and evil corporations who are want to get their hands on Mr. Cheeseman's latest invention.

    Another of my son's books that I read at his recommendation and urging. If Tim Dorsey moved out of Florida and wrote children's books they might be something like this. Minus the murder and drugs, bit still with the memorable characters, interweaving story lines and tons of humor. The Cheeseman family, the machinations of their enemies, and the help of their friends make for a good story. Waiting for the next one.

    This was such a fun book! I will definitely be using this is my classroom. The book is clever and exciting. Despite the huge amount of names the reader has to remember, somehow the author made it easy to know who was who without being repetitive. The use of the numbers for names to describe rank was pretty clever in itself! It was very well written and wasn't one of those books with glaring grammatical errors that you wouldn't want your kids to see! This ought to be a classic!

    A quirky story involving time travel, spies, a sock puppet, a monnkey sidekick and a family on the run.This is the type of book that will appeal to reluctant readers, particularly boys. It has just the right amount of humor, adventure, and good guys vs. bad guys.
  • (4/5)
    Three attractive, polite, relatively odor-free children help their inventor father keep his time machine out of the hands of government agents, international superspies and corporate villains. The narrative is interspersed with pages of unsolicited advice from Dr. Cuthbert Soup, whose identity is never revealed here but might be in a sequel: the cliffhanger end of this book promises a "whole nother story." Wacky humor that might appeal to Lemony Snicket fans.
  • (4/5)
    This is a very entertaining book filled with intriguing, unusual and sometimes delightfully silly characters. A fortuneteller with short term memory loss, a cowboy poet who rhymes too much, a tightrope walker who has vertigo, a hairless dog who can warn the family of danger approaching from miles away and a one eyed sock puppet who has a mind of his own, are just some of the characters who energize these pages. All these and more are a part of the everyday life of the Cheeseman family on the run from greedy corporate gangsters, government men in suits and an international spy with a chimpanzee for a partner. Why on the run? Well, Mr Cheeseman has or may have a time machine, if he can get it working, that is highly sought after by almost everyone. Add to this the invaluable, unsolicited advice, freely interspersed throughout the book at no extra charge by the author and you have a real winner.

    Quirky and cute. A good beginning to a series. Mr. Cheeseman, his polite, clean, reasonably good smelling children, their hairless, psychic dog, and a sock puppet named Steve are on the run from government agents, international super spies, corporate mobsters, and a chimp. All because of the LVR, which looks like a giant disco ball, but is actually a time machine. Well, they think it's a time machine. Probably. Unless it is just a very heavy disco ball that is wanted by international super spies, government agencies, and corporations that produce microwave ovens and nuclear bombs. And a chimp who once saved the life of an international super spy. You see, Mr. Cheeseman and his children have been running from the aforementioned forces of, lets call them, darkness for so long that they haven't really had time to finish the LVR. So they don't really know if it works. But this just may be the trip where they have to find out.
