Dr. Cuthbert Soup joins those pseudonymous authors Snicket and Bosch who craft their tales with asides to the reader. Soup uses entire chapters to sail off on unrelated topics. And the story itself is just as quirky. Ethan Cheeseman has invented a time machine much coveted by others for nefarious activities. Unfortunately, these goons get to Mrs. Cheeseman and murder her before the Cheeseman family recognize the peril the invention has brought to their lives. Fortunately, they have a psychic dog who is able to warn them of future attacks. Unfortunately, this means the family is constantly on the run. The three children are so adept at change that they are able to pack up their goods in no time at all and change their names with each new location. The children have moved so much that they are now ready to find a "safe haven" and put down roots so that each child can develop his or her own talent. Packed with characters whose names often have more character than the character himself, this story should entertain readers of Bosch and Snicket and lead them to the next book in the series.
