Nicholas, Jeef, and Henrietta the gerbil are back in another laugh-out-loud intergalactic adventure in this rollicking sequel to Emperor of the Universe. Before Nicholas V. Landrew can enjoy more than a few weeks in his new role as emperor of the universe, his world begins to fall apart. His mortal enemies, the Craborzi, have cloned him and are using these copies to produce an intergalactic reality show called The Abominable Emperor—killing a clone in every episode! Even worse, his parents want him to take out the garbage!
