A small town handyman is shocked when he’s asked by aliens to repair their damaged spacecraft. After fixing the wondrous ship, Andy Robinson learns their mission to the planet actually entails the total destruction of the Earth. You know, to keep the peace. Oh, and the alien captain kidnaps his family to display in their zoo. With time running out, Andy must use his limited handyman talents to not only save his family, but the entire world.
Altbacker does an excellent job of creating a distinctive and convincing alien culture, which leads to an interesting cultural clash and humorous miscommunications between the humans and aliens. He is a seasoned screenwriter, which is apparent from the book’s hilarious dialogue and word-play. Handy Andy Saves the World makes for an enjoyable read, especially for
YA readers. Red City Review
