Hazzardous Universe by Julie Wright and Kevin Wasden: Win a Copy!


A guy who works in his grandfather's magic shop expects weird things to happen. But Hap Hazzard has never had a day like this. First, a freaky old man in a cape who calls himself "Torval" visits the shop and somehow makes a trash can explode. Then Torval delivers an ominous message to Hap's grandfather, upsetting the old man so badly that he yells at Hap for the first time ever. Next, this girl Tara shows up to apply for a job, and for reasons Hap can't understand, his cool magic tricks send her away in tears. But that's nothing compared to what happens next. Under orders to apologize to Tara, Hap searches for the girl. But he can barely say he's sorry before three spaceships appear, the biggest of the three looking like a burnt slice of pizza.

The weirdness only ramps up as Hap and Tara soon find themselves aboard the pizza-shaped ship piloted by a pair of aliens. Even though they were accidentally abducted, the two humans are now forced to join an out-of-this-world mission that includes razor-toothed multilingual beetles, a psychic queen bee, manic ape frogs, a coveted crystal, and a hundred other bizarre things that just might make sense-if Hap could only remember and understand Torval's cryptic message. Join Hap and Tara as they begin a fantastic journey into the far reaches of the universe

I have been anxiously awaiting the debut of Hazzardous Universe it is the first of a four-book series that is fun and exciting for young readers. Paired with excellent illustrations, the book invites readers on an imaginative journey to discover the truth about aliens. I will be posting a review of the book and an interview with Julie Wright in a few weeks. I think that this book will be a wonderful read for kids (and adults) of all ages.

If you would like to win a free copy of this book, you need to head on over to Julie's website and see what you need to do.

This is from Julie's site with information about the launch party this Wednesday night:

The launch party for Hazzard Universe Book has finally been set in stone! It will be held at: Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Murray UT. On the corner of 5300 S and State St on Wednesday, March 9th from 6-8 pm. Kevin Wasden and I would be thrilled to have you join us to celebrate the beginnings of this series with us. We’ll have light refreshments, some door prizes, and be signing books!

Deseret News also featured this book in today's paper. Go and read what they had to say.

I hope that you will be able to attend the launch party. I know that I am planning on going.

  3. I look forward to your review of this book. I'm always looking for books my son might enjoy.

    Also, good luck on the AtoZ Challenge! I've been trying to brainstorm what to write about the last few days since I heard of it.
