Jimmy Crikey's Adventures in Parallel Worlds by Wallace E. Briggs is part of The Adventures of Jimmy Crikey series. Earth has been invaded by an alien species, called Wormz, that goes up against the guardians working to keep the planet safe. Jimmy develops a plan to retrieve help from Attalia by embarking on a trip through space. Along his journey, he discovers a stowaway – the witch-in-training Jade. The trip through space quickly veers off course when the alien worms attack them, only for them to be rescued by allies and taken to Attalia. Jimmy and Jade work alongside President Alpha, who assigns his scientists to seek a solution against the Wormz which may be the only chance the guardians have to save the planet. When a solution has been achieved, Jimmy has to make his way back to earth, but the journey back is just as dangerous as Jade's life soon hangs in the balance with the scientists scrambling to save her just as Jimmy needs her help the most.
Wallace E. Briggs delivers a story that blends humor with action moments that create a fitting next adventure in Jimmy's journey. Jimmy's life has become a series of adventures that take him between parallel worlds in a journey that has explored his own origins since discovering more about his family. Jimmy is an orphan that has found a place for himself in the Roombelow and has since learned more about himself as a hero. The aliens are immediately introduced as a threat after he fails to communicate with them about their intentions and gets attacked without provocation. This science fiction adventure weaves in elements that serve as a foray into the genre for young adult readers and broaden the world with an aesthetic of space, bringing the setting to life. Each character plays a role within the adventure to help Jimmy fight against the alien worms, such as the four witches that are an important part of the story. The kind heart and heroic spirit he possesses come from those that surround him during his adventures. In a humorous science fiction adventure, Jimmy Crikey's Adventures in Parallel Worlds has action-packed moments, space travel, and alien worms.
