About the Book

For a long time, Chester, we... that is, Auntie and I and William, and well, a whole lot of people, well, we only sort of felt that something might be happening around us, something we weren't really sure what it was...

When Chester visits his Uncle William's stuffy house, he's only trying to avoid cleaning the hall bathroom. But a single clue written on a gum wrapper will send them all on a frantic journey - across many cities and through places unknown to society. At every step along the way, they may even meet new and interesting people. They may need a few cases of bubblegum toothpaste. And they may be tossed into a terrible war between unimaginable forces, a battle that no one even knows about...

About the Author

Michael Rains was often commended by teachers for creative writing, even to having an award category created for him at a school graduation. "When drawing, I can never make a straight line," he says. "I guess I write the same way." After living on a hill at the end of Sylmar for nine years, he has learned to write books in the same way that a cactus finds water. If he found three wishes, one would be to see his favorite white cat that ran off.
