The Cookie Company
by Ross Venokur
When the unluckiest boy in the world turns unlucky 13, bad luck is sure to follow. So when a mysterious Chinese food delivery man appears on his doorstep with a surprise birthday dinner, Alex Grindlay knows better than to expect a good fortune cookie for dessert. But even Alex could not have predicted the crazy adventures that lie ahead of him. Just his luck, one little fortune cookie will change his life forever. Alex is whisked away into a world where anything can happen, and the fortune in his cookie is his only clue to finding a way home. If that isn't bad luck enough, he's pursued relentlessly by Cypress Vine, an evil game show host who wants to take over Alex's world. All she needs is a way to get out of her world and into his--and the magical cookies will do just the trick. With all his bad luck, how on earth can Alex stop a superpowerful game show host? He'd better find a way if he ever wants to get home.
