Herbert's Wormhole is about a boy traveling to the future. I loved the book and I hope that you do too. At the beginning, a boy named Alex a wanted a video game called Alien Slayer 2. So his parents gave in and bought it for him. Unfortunately, right after his parents bought Alien Slayer 2 Alien Slayer 3-D came out. In Alien Slayer 3-D it comes with all these cool swords and suits. He promised his parents that once he's finished with the game he will play out side for the rest of the summer. When he finished the game his mom sewed him a shirt that said I Love Slaying Aliens!

Review: Herbert's Wormhole by Peter Nelson & Rohitash Rao
We received an advanced reading copy of Herbert's Wormhole by Peter Nelson & Rohitash Rao from Harper Collins First Look for Children. This book was released on May 5, 2009. This is a children's book for ages 9-12.
My son, Andrew, is 10 years old and he read this book and loved it. Even though it was missing some key elements such as many of the cartoons and several chapters were missing. That says a lot if he loved the book and it was missing so much and this is "A Novel in Cartoons". Andrew wanted to write his own review and I'm very proud of the wonderful job he did. You would make him very happy if you could leave a few comments for him.
So, he put on the shirt and kept it on. His parents said they had a surprise for him outside. So he went out side and saw a jungle gym. He thought it was sorta babyish because he was going into 6th grade. Then his mom said he has to play with this kid named Herbert. Herbert is Alex's age and uses all these science words. Herbert has no friends. So Alex went inside Herbert's house to see if Hebert could play with him on his new jungle gym. When Alex walked in Herbert's room Alex was mad because Hebert got Alien Slayer 3-D and Herbert was taking it apart and making adjustments to two of the suits. For some reason Herbert and Alex had the suits on. Alex was playing on the jungle gym and Herbert was trying to walk through the fence. Suddenly, Alex accidentally hit a switch on the suit and Alex was getting sucked through the slide. Herbert was shouting at him to turn it off but it was to late. After they got sucked up by the slide they somehow ended up one hundred years later where G'daliens are friends with humans because they saved earth for them. Can Herbert and Alex get back to their normal time period or will they be stuck with G'daliens & not return home? Find out what will happen to them when you buy the book! G'day mates!
