Benny Santiago And The Mask Of Mortimer Muerto
Not-Earth, that wonder world of absurdity, is doomed. But what's this--a twelve year old rescuer? Roll on the mayhem!
Benny Santiago's first days as a person with extreme talent and abilities (superhero is so last-year) are very tough, especially since he doesn't even know yet what his talent and abilities are. Joining forces with a clever new friend, Alma Patch, in search of the two Toms from Jugo Juice, Inc., their paths collide with Doctor Vert and Señor Snert (a couple of Planet Bandits from the world of Hert), as well as retired pirates turned restaurateurs; an almost-invisible, elf-like cowboy ape; a hog and dog recovery agent; and the most diabolical belch ever created.
With tons of puns, a lot of alliteration, and more spoonerisms than you can stake a shick at, Benny Santiago and the Mask of Mortimer Muerto is a must read for kids, adult kids and senior citizen kids alike.
