Booklist Reviews 2018 February #2

Having neglected to read the fine print, young Happy Conklin Jr. discovers that he's signed away his whole family, instead of just his evil grandma, to alien Gubbins—for a Wrastlinsanity death match in a galactic arena. Since he likes his parents and four (at least) of his five sisters, a rescue is in order. Unfortunately, before she's taken, Happy's sister Kayla, who can see into multiple futures, tells him that anything he does will almost certainly end badly. Nonetheless, off he stumbles on the way to a climactic tag-team bout (along with, of all people, his grandma) against a giant fangy eel monster. As a fifth-grader who has to shave three times a day—he was a test subject for one of his inventor dad's experiments—Hap is nonetheless far from the only oddball member in a notably quirky cast. Readers will be likewise amused by the random twists, silly inventions, and frequent spot drawings and sequential panels that New Yorker cartoonist Noth weaves into his droll, if occasionally surreal, debut.
