Planet Twerp by Jacqueline Pansy is the story of a 12-year-old boy called Dean, who while on a cruise ship with his dad, is distressed to hear that a typhoon is heading their way. After his dad tells him that he may have to leave his dog behind in an emergency, he hides in a lifeboat with Mr. Quiggs, the dog, so they will be together. Unfortunately, the boat ends up in the water, and Dean's problems only get weirder when he meets an alien and falls through a wormhole to his home planet - Planet Twerp. Skrugs, the alien, was an interesting character, and I enjoyed learning about him and his species. This was a good adventure story with plenty to keep the reader entertained. It jumps straight into the action and keeps going right to the end.
Jacqueline Pansy has written an entertaining book in Planet Twerp. I liked how the story progressed, and Dean is a great character. His worry over his pet dog leads him on the adventure of a lifetime, and you can really get behind the character and hope he gets home okay. The story moved at a good pace and kept me reading. I think it would appeal to children around 10-13 and adventure/sci-fi fans. It would probably appeal a little more to boys rather than girls, but I think it is suitable for both. I think it could do well on the market. I would recommend it.
