Author Mad Libs: James Mihaley

The second author in our Author Mad Libs Hat Trick Day is James Mihaley, author of the book YOU CAN'T HAVE MY PLANET: BUT TAKE MY BROTHER, PLEASE. Feel like reading a fun adventure? This book hits the shelves April 10, 2012. I sent James a parts of speech list. He sent back words. This is the result.

Thirteen-year-old Giles is the last _wombat_ anyone would expect to save the planet. He's not as _cartoony_ as his little sister, and not as brainy as his goody-goody older _yogi_. But when Giles witnesses an alien _whoopy cushion_ showing Earth to possible new tenants, he knows he'd better _empurple_ something. With the help of an alien "attorney" and the _tawniest_ scientist in middle-grade fiction, Giles just might save _pygmies_ from eviction from Earth. Let's hope so. The alternatives are...not so _peppy_.

About the Author:
James Mihaley has milked _tusks_. He drove 1,000 miles in one day for a _spectral_concert. Once, he almost got eaten by _manure_. He lives in L.A., where he avoids the _leeks_ and _quibbles_ the pigeons. This is his first _curmudgeon_.

I can't wait to get this book for my boys! Thank you, James, for playing along. To learn more about James, visit his site. To purchase his book, head to Indie Bound, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, or Amazon.
