The Cheesemans are back on the trail, traveling through time in the hopes of rescuing their beloved wife and mother, Olivia. But time travel can be very tricky. They bounce off the Time Arc and land in Some Times–a place filled with dinosaurs, Vikings, and cavemen, and where the seasons are apt to change without warning.
In this hilarious and zany conclusion to the Whole Nother Story series, Dr. Cuthbert Soup treats his readers to more adventures, more challenges, and more unsolicited advice. Ethan Cheeseman and his children have met numerous quirky characters along their journey. They have escaped from the clutches of the evil people who wish to steal the LVR and use it to perform heinous acts. In this thrilling story, the stakes are as high as they’ve ever been. Not only must they keep the LVR out of the hands of those who want to misuse it, they must find a way back to the exact moment in time before Olivia Cheeseman is poisoned, in order to make their family whole again.
Like the other books in this series, No Other Story is filled not only with hilarious antics, but several tender family moments. What I thought was odd in this book, however, is that Dr. Soup–who has been the narrator for all the stories–has a flashback that makes him part of the storyline. My girls (11 and 9) found it a bit confusing. If the style of the other books was similar, it probably would have flowed well, but since he only makes an actual appearance in the last book it was distracting.
Despite that little obstacle, the girls and I loved No Other Story. I’m sad to see this series end. I hope Dr. Cuthbert Soup has more stories in store for us.
