Galactic Hot Dogs #3
Revenge of the Space Pirates
By Max Brallier
Cosmoe, Princess Dagger, Humphree, and the gang are back for another swashbuckling space adventure in the third hilarious illustrated novel of the Galactic Hot Dogs series, which Big Nate author Lincoln Peirce calls “an insanely entertaining, eye-popping adventure.”
Secrets about Cosmoe and Big Humphree’s past are revealed during a twisty new adventure for the crew of the Neon Wiener, leading up to a major turning point in all of their lives aboard the intergalactic hot dog truck.
The crew of the interstellar hot dog stand Neon Wiener return, ready to foil another one of evil Queen Dagger’s dastardly schemes. This epic, heavily illustrated follow-up to Cosmoe’s Weiner Getaway (2015) has just as many heroic feats, narrow squeaks, mighty explosions, monster fights, and crude jokes as the first adventure. Dashingly coiffured Earth boy Cosmoe, his two alien sidekicks, and Princess Dagger, the semievil daughter of the aforementioned queen, literally hitch their wagon to a traveling circus that turns out to be capturing aliens to create an army of mind-controlled monsters. Time to, as Cosmoe puts it, “STOP THE BAD DUDES AND SAVE THE DAY!” Readers of the Galactic Hot Dogs webcomic, from which the series is spun, will know they are in for quite a romp. — John Peters, Booklist, April 20, 2016
