In this fourth book, Ed goes to sign up for the bowling league, but accidentally signs up for a playwriting contest instead. Ed and his friends write a VERY wacky play that stars a hamburger, a moose, a ninja, and even a pirate mouse! While performing the play, Ed's powers as the Stranger make things in the Looniverse turn more than a little loony! Ed scrambles to stop the strangeness before it's too late.
Matt Loveridge likes to draw subjects that expose the lighter side of life, so he loves illustrating children's books! Looniverse was the first children's book series he illustrated. Matt lives in Utah with his beautiful, supportive wife and their three rambunctious kids (who are a constant source of inspiration!).
