Thacher Hurd's new middle grade novel, Bongo Fishing, is a warm and funny story about friendly aliens, old cars, crazy gadgets and a wild chase across the Nevada desert near Area 51. Jason Jameson's life will never be the same after he meets Sam and Edna from the Pleiades. Not to mention a weird psychiatrist named Dr. Zimburger who is interested in UFOs, and a cat named Sputnik who gets the blue measles...

“Intriguing gadgets and amusing descriptions of alien technology add to the fun, as do the lively illustrations.”--School Library Journal
