SYNOPSIS - BOOK 1- GRAMPA'S CURIOUS VACATION - Grampa Ethan takes a vacation by himself after a visit from his adoptive father, the alien, Xerix. Grampa makes arrangements to go back to Gizmok with him for a visit. “E-fan” has not seen his alien family for many years, and misses them. So he goes … without telling his Earth family of course. They think he’s gone to take “a walk down memory lane”, which is true, technically. He has a wonderful visit, re-counting many fond memories and visiting old friends, but on the way back he is in a terrible car accident. Grampa spends time hospitalized in a coma, where he does more “visiting”. At the suggestion of Lewis, Janet and Graham begin reading to Grampa Ethan from his own book, hoping the stories will wake him up. The stories help, but he finally wakes up thanks to someone completely unexpected.

Cappy just wants to go fishing, but a little bit of bad luck in the steering department sends him into the most bizarre world he’s ever seen. Only his deckhand, Fish seems to know a little bit about these strange beings he calls “Nimpchuks”.
Cappy is in for the fishing trip of his life, and he does everything but catch fish! He meets, and goes up against a king, gets accused of breaking the law, escapes a cannery prison, starts a revolution, saves a whole lotta fish from a fate worse than … well, death itself, and a whole lot more!
Grampa Ethan thinks these Nimpchuks are aliens from Graalkuzzer called “Nmp-Chks”, and maybe he’s right! Whoever they are, they live somewhere you’ll probably never go to, so don’t worry too much about them … unless of course they decide to migrate south. Then we’re all in trouble!

To save him from a cruel professor and a dissecting table, he must adopt his pet to make him legal on Gizmok.

Although his plan doesn't produce the results he wants, the bullying is finally eliminated by something nobody saw coming.

The Ballad of Blue Eagle Bill .. This epic poem was first written (partially) in the middle of the 1993 commercial fishing season, and finished years later when I started this book project. It was inspired by an event that shall forever been remembered exactly the way it's described in this book - and to be read with tongue-in-cheek. The original back story involved a HUGE fish, and a somewhat flummoxed Captain Bill. That's all I'm going to say. Fully illustrated. You gotta read it! Your kids and grandkids will love it!
