About The Adventures of Danny Hoopenbiller 5-book series:
 
Danny Hoopenbiller, the titular character, is an ingenious young inventor. The 5-book series chronicles Danny's ridiculous inventions and heart-pounding adventures. His exploits take him through a diverse group of locations, from Earthly places like New York and Yucatan, Mexico to interstellar settings such as Foodland the Planet Seventh! Whether Danny's fighting for the future of the human race or aiming to get back home after a portal mishap, he always manages to throw in a bit of humor as well. Traveling through time, portals and wormholes, Danny teams up with a colorful cast of allies (e.g. POTUS, US Army, NASA, Albert Einstein's long lost daughter Lieserl, the Havocker brothers and his family) for adventures ranging from an exploration beyond the solar system to high-stakes battles against otherworldly adversaries such as Martians, dinosaurs and Dinozillas!
 
Enjoy this adventure! Books 1 and 2 are not part of the main story arc, but they can be read independently and are written for elementary school readers! Books 3 through 5 contain the main story arc of the series, where Danny (a talented inventor) leads the US Army in a fight for the survival of humanity against intelligent, formidable dinosaur mutants. Advanced readers should start with Book 3, "Danny and the Invasion of the Dinosaurs". No matter where you start, you can be assured that every Danny Hoopenbiller adventure is chock-full of humor and imagination!

Summary of the story
Book 2 - Danny and the Trip to Outer Space
 
The story starts when Danny accidentally spills soda on one of his birthday gifts, a RC plane, and it enlarges enough so it could fit Danny's whole family inside it. Unfortunately, Danny's house is destroyed when the machine starts up and the family decides to travel to Massachusetts (from England). On the way, they run into Grandpa Garth's plane and all of Danny's relatives join Danny's family.  
Two hours later, after a nap, Danny finds out that the spacecraft has flown through the atmosphere and they have entered outer space. They land on the Moon and have a fun time there. When they come back to their spacecraft, 100 Martian Spacebattlers attack the spacecraft. The only way Danny and his passengers could survive the attack was to fire their own cannons. They eventually win the battle and head on farther from Earth and more into outer space.
