Mac Barnett And Shawn Harris Release The First Cat In Space And The Soup Of Doom #HeliumRadio
The series follows the adventures of First Cat, LOZ 4000, and the Moon Queen, as they work to uncover who poisoned the Queen’s soup. Perfect for fans of Dav Pilkey and Jeff Kinney. The Moon Queen has been poisoned – by SOUP. And with few she can trust in her own court, she and First Cat will have to journey alone to find the antidote in time. If only Loz4000 were still with them… But the once-heroic toenail clipping robot is running from his own terrible tale, and now looking for new purpose and meaning in this vast universe, taking Loz4000 far away from his friends. Unbeknownst to our trio, secret forces are working against them. With villainous cowboys about, high-speed chases, and pianos falling from the sky – can our iconic trio find their way back to one another and save the Moon Queen before it’s too late? And who would want to poison her? Will they ever eat soup again? Is Captain Babybeard, the adorable baby pirate, in this one?
