THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK by Ace Hansen
Whilst I was cruising the Milky Way Galaxy in search of better tasting food, I crash landed into Meteor Crater, near Flagstaff, Arizona. Never having been on Earth, I hopped over to the closest city and began searching for nourishment. Everywhere I went people pointed and laughed, especially after I'd let out a few flaturific emissions. I couldn't understand why my green gas was so funny, until I realized Earthlings emissions were invisible! So I began to wonder, what if Earthlings started blowing greenies?
The next thing I know, I'm being chased all over town by scary men in dark blue suits 'cause apparently you Earthlings think you have to pass around some kind of dark green and white paper in order to get the food you need. Crazy! So after spending a short stint behind bars, I figured I could get cash by making up funny stories for the miniature Earthlings, especially the ones who giggled and snorted every time they saw one of my green poofs.
And thus JULIUS CAESAR BROWN AND THE GREEN GAS MYSTERY was born!
The real Julius Caesar conquered the world.
All I wanted was to conquer a simple spelling test.
I set down my pencil and glared at Ben Purdee, the brainiest kid in fifth grade. “No problem.”
Yes, I had a problem. And it wasn’t just how to spell brocolee. Or was it brockoly?
Mrs. Tucker closed her book. “Time’s up. Pass them forward.”
I handed my test to Ivy Chen, who sat in front of me, and pushed my chair away from the desk. The legs scraped the floor. A loud, embarrassing noise echoed through the classroom. Heads turned. Ivy stared, her brown eyes wide as pie.
Ben nudged me and smirked. “Did you just—?”
“No. It was my chair. See?” I scooted back and forth trying to remake the suspicious sound, but I failed. Ben moved his desk away from mine. Ivy’s nose twitched. My cheeks grew hot. “It really was the chair,” I mumbled.
