Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the sequel to Peter Nelson and Rohitash Rao's Herbert's Wormhole, the breakout novel-in-cartoons that J. K. Rowling called "absolutely wonderful fast-paced, inventive, engaging, and hilarious."

Herbert, Alex, and Sammi are heroes in the year 2109, having successfully saved the planet from an alien invasion (or so everyone thinks). Everything is going just swimmingly until, inevitably, real aliens appear the evil, destruction-obsessed Klapthorians. The crew is going to come clean, but then they meet a crazy old man who turns out to be Alex, age 109 with a plan for saving the world all over again. Can they do it and still make it back home by curfew?

The sequel to Herbert's Wormhole is chock-full of the same humor, imagination, and irresistible artwork as the first title. There are hijinks aplenty, not to mention skateboard stunts, time travel, and a whole lot of fake moustache shenanigans. Fans, old and new alike, will not be disappointed.

About the Author

Peter Nelson is a screenwriter who lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Diane, and their two sons, Charlie and Christopher. Herbert's Wormhole was Peter's First children's book. He wrote it without ever having met an actual alien or traveling through time, which made it a bit more challenging, but just as fun.

Rohitash Rao was born in an exotic, faraway land called Hyderabad, India. He then grew up in another exotic, faraway land called Rancho Cucamonga, California. He now lives in a magical city on an island called Manhattan, where he works as an animator and director. Herbert's Wormhole was Rao's First children's book, much of which he illustrated while sitting on a broken stool in his apartment.
