In this second installment of Nathan Bransford's zany series, Jacob Wonderbar gets a message that he has been nominated for President of the Universe. His best friends Sarah Daisy and Dexter agree to be his campaign managers, and they head back to space to declare Jacob's candidacy. But politics are dirty, especially in space. The trouble begins before Jacob's campaign has even started and stakes are higher than he imagined: It turns out that the Valkrians (a space faction that loves blowing stuff up) wants to destroy Planet Earth, and the President of the Universe is the only person who can stop them.


"[Readers] will enjoy the story's gadgets and broad (bodily function-focused) humor." — Booklist


"Bransford's second slapstick space saga is as much fun as the first." — Kirkus


"The breakneck plot zooms from planet to planet and crisis to crisis, and includes berserk space monkeys, trigger-happy SEER thugs, and even bloviating journalists. Along the way, there's some trenchant parody of contemporary electoral politics and sensation-obsessed media, as well as a surprisingly thoughtful reflection on loyalty, friendship, and individual responsibility. The cliff-hanger ending will ensure an audience for the next installment." — School Library Journal
