"Drawing or writing, Bush's pen is loaded with wit."

Welcome to the spaceship home of Benjamin McFadden--where tennis is played in spacesuits, books are read in zero gravity, and robot babysitters have eight arms and are preprogrammed to send you to bed at 8:00 p.m. sharp. But the night his parents go to the Rings of Saturn Preservation Dance, Benjamin McFadden isn't ready for bed. Taking matters into his own hands, he reprograms Babysitter, and his own private party is soon underway--until Benjamin is finally ready to rest. The only hitch? Now Babysitter wants to party, and Benjamin must stop the festivities before his parents get home. Timothy Bush takes fun and multiplies it by a million in his most far-out book to date, filling it with fanciful illustrations and a story meant especially for fans who thirst for adventure!
