About this title


This fantastical tale is about a little boy who simply wants toast and juice for breakfast-but instead is snatched up by a tornado and dropped off at a castle, where the king forces him to eat a big banana split. And back home instead of getting to take a simple shower like he wants, he is swooshed away to a pirate ship and forced to walk the gangplank (after that, he doesn't need the shower). From there, things become even more unreasonable as the refrigerator skyrockets into the air and a goof-looking space creature demands one trillion hamburgers. All in a day's work for an imaginative young boy.

About the Author:

Rick Walton is the author of dozens of books for kids, including his popular books introducing language arts concepts: Once There Was a Bullfrog, Why the Banana Split, and Herd of Cows Flock of Sheep. He often plays his guitar happily. Rick and his family live in Provo, Utah. For more info visit
