Inhaltsangabe: Plot Summary: Charly and Marlie, two chickens from the modern chicken planet Cluckeneenoos, had only planned for a cozy birthday picnic in outer space. But when they take their space ship, the ?Boring Tube?, for a ride, they soon find themselves tumbling from one crazy adventure to the next. Suddenly, they?re dealing with all kinds of whacky aliens: racing moles, hold-your-beak vines, magma hamsters and gourmet moray eels ? just to name a few. The two of them must prove themselves as jungle explorers, ghost hunters and secret agents in order to succeed. Adding to their challenge, the infamous walrus artist Benny Bratworst appears on the scene. The galactic gangster has plans to conquer the universe with hearty-party music, avalanches and four seasons of winter! Will Charly, Marlie and their new friends be able to save the universe from Benny?s frosty plans? About the Book: G.F. Bileck?s Charly and Marlie?s Adventures in Outer Space is, simply put, a children?s book with universal appeal (pun intended!). Its humor and innocence will delight the young and charm the young at heart, making a great addition to any family?s bookcase. Bileck includes subtle nods to children?s classics that will strike a chord with adult readers, and his unbridled imagination will treat all readers to a one-of-a-kind journey. The story?s cuddly, whacky charm is matched only by Portland graphics artist James T. Eldridge?s adorable illustrations. His drawings will surely elicit chuckles for their playful pop culture references, while demanding multiple views for their attention to detail. This version of the book ? for the first time ever ? includes all three volumes of Charly and Marlie?s adventures in one complete edition, sporting additional artwork and a compendium of all characters.
Über den Autor: About the Author: It all began with a deep admiration for adventure stories, a cozy, chocolate-rich afternoon in the garden and a shiny, golden ball point pen (a gift from the neighbor). In the blink of an eye, 8-year-old G.F. Bileck scribbled the very first sentence of his book: ?Far, far away in the unending universe, there is a planet called Cluckeneenoos whose life-forms are chickens?. That memorable summer?s day back in 1980 laid the foundation not only for Charly and Marlie?s Adventures in Outer Space but also for an insatiable passion for writing. After traversing the darker realms of literature with his Gothic-Fantasy novels Marburg by Night and The Queen of Underdark, the author now pays tribute to his lighter side (and his youth) by revisiting and completing his first inspiration. Bileck currently lives in Portland, Maine with his wife Liddy who translated the manuscript into English. Besides writing books, he works for a social services agency, loves outdoor sports and is an avid video gamer. About the Illustrator: Portland graphics artist James T. Eldridge would have loved to employ chicken robots to cook for him, do his laundry, and get cookies from the bakery while working on this project. But alas! ? Earth technology lags far behind that of Cluckeneenoos. Luckily, Eldridge loves drawing and juggled the drudgery of daily tasks while painstakingly breathing detailed life and character into each illustration of the Charly and Marlie?s universe. When not drawing, Eldridge spends his time watching movies, consuming cookies, and playing video games.
