Adam Rubin | The Human Kaboom (IN STORE)

Adam Rubin is back with The Human Kaboom, a companion to The Ice Cream Machine, inviting you into six thrilling new worlds filled with daring and danger, mystery and mayhem—not to mention explosions!

In a swanky New York City hotel, a reclusive guest appears to have spontaneously  combusted. On a school field trip to a human anatomy museum in space, two kids try to pull off the greatest prank in history. Somewhere on a deserted island, three siblings try to make a life for themselves after the rest of the planet has been decimated by gigantic rock monsters. And then there's the small, quaint fishing town where a boy visiting his sister stumbles across an ancient curse; the traveling circus where a young girl becomes the assistant to a death-defying human cannonball; and the rugged wilderness where one kid with superpowers just can't seem to find some peace.

Each story is illustrated by a different artist, including Marta Altés, Daniel Gray-Barnett, Rodolfo Montalvo, Daniel Salmieri, Adam de Souza, and Gracey Zhang, with black-and-white artwork that practically explodes off the page. So put on some protective eyewear and grab some earplugs, because this book is guaranteed to blow your mind!


ADAM RUBIN is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many critically acclaimed picture books, including Dragons Love Tacos, Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel, Gladys the Magic Chicken, High Five, Secret Pizza Party, Robo-Sauce, and El Chupacabras, which won the Texas Bluebonnet Award. The Ice Cream Machine is his middle-grade debut.
