Run for your lives! It’s an invasion of ketchup-eating, fuzzy caterpillars from Mars! But none of the townspeople take them seriously. So the wily creatures resort to drastic measures to satisfy their craving for ketchup and the Martian invasion turns into the invasion of the body snatchers. Joshua Dawson’s comical illustrations capture the bewilderment on the faces of the townspeople as they eat, sleep and breathe ketchup. Brian Rock entices young readers into the melee by giving them a tongue twister to shout at the woolly invaders. Can a tongue twister save Earth’s ketchup before the Martians devour it all? Martian Mustache Mischief! is an amusing tall tale that goes to astronomical heights to explain why Mars is called the red planet.  ~ Copyright (c) 2015 by Peggy Tibbetts
