Lunchbox and the Aliens

Searching for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence using ear radar

“Lunchbox rolled happily in the grass, squirming from side to side like a sausage heating unevenly. He paused occasionally, allowing the June sun to warm one side or the other, and letting his long ears flop over his face or spread out flat on the ground. Then he resumed, grunting and snorting in pure canine contentment, oblivious to the mailman, oblivious to fleas, oblivious to the alien eyes that observed him from two hundred miles up.”

Lunchbox is your average basset hound: round, floppy, and not too bright…until he’s abducted by aliens. Then he suddenly becomes a lean, mean, garbage-machine-making, uh, machine….Will Lunchbox and his boy, Nate, solve the world’s garbage crisis and form the first interplanetary alliance? Or will the fate of the the whole solar system come to rest on whether Lunchbox can ever learn to catch a Frisbee?

What you need to know: this is a funny middle-grade book (for readers roughly 8-12 years old), with a basset hound on the cover, a basset hound as a main character, and buying it through this link will help basset hounds.
