Whales on Stilts
Reissued as trade pbk. in 2006 with ISBN: 0152053948.
Reissued by Beach Lane Books in 2010.
Delightfully silly on several levels, Whales on Stilts lampoons series such as Goosebumps and Tom Swift while also paying homage to them. Anderson has included several extras like footnotes, order forms for the fictional book series he references, and book discussion materials. While there will be some children who won't enjoy the humor, there will be plenty who will greatly enjoy the sci-fi and fantasy elements mixed with deadpan jokes and plenty of action. Adult readers who fondly remember pulp novels, might also be attracted to this.
