When three alien cheeses threaten the Earth with cheesy destruction, Funny Boy must once again use his superhuman wit to save the planet.Review by Publisher Summary 2
When America’s cows go on strike, a gang of interstellar cheeses land on EarthThe nation’s cattle have gotten too smart for their own good. Tired of letting humans steal their milk, American cows have gone on strike. This is great news for every kid who hates drinking his milk, but trouble for anybody who likes cheese. Funny Boy—a joke-telling superhero who was sent to Earth from the planet Crouton—is mourning the cheese shortage when five giant cheeses fall on Wisconsin, squashing an unlucky farmer named George Gouda. That alone would be weird enough, but the cheeses also talk. The cheeses are aliens from the faraway planet Chattanooga, and they have come to stop the cheese shortage. The country’s woe is ended, but something about the aliens’ story stinks worse than month-old Muenster. It will take Funny Boy and his galactic sense of humor to curdle these curds before America starts to spoil. This book features an illustrated biography of Dan Gutman including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
