We have always been a fan of David Lubar and his Weenies Tales series, plus he grew up in the same area as we did in NJ, so when we got a chance to introduce Luciana V to his work, we were excited. She enjoyed reading Emperor of the Universe and now is eagerly looking through our bookcase for the Weenies Tales series.
The Emperor of the Universe is a madcap space adventure trilogy for young readers by David Lubar, author of the popular Weenies Tales! The zany space adventures of seventh grader Nicholas, his pet gerbil Henrietta, and a package of ground beef named Jeef.

The launch of a hilarious space adventure trilogy for young readers by David Lubar, author of the popular Weenies Tales!
When seventh grader Nicholas V. Landrew, his beloved pet gerbil Henrietta, and a package of ground beef are beamed aboard an alien space ship, they soon find themselves on the run in a madcap chase across the universe.
Now all Nicholas wants to do is get back home before his parents find out and ground him forever, but with the Universal Police hot on his trail, that won’t be easy. Before it’s all over, Henrietta will find herself safely ensconced back in her cage, Nicholas will be crowned Emperor of the Universe, and something even more surprising will happen to the package of ground beef.
