Chorkle and its human friends Hollins, twins Becky and Nicki, and Little Gus (who is now lobbying to be called Medium Gus) have been warped to a strange new galaxy. When Kalac is stranded on neighboring planet Kyral, the gang takes matters into its own hands (and thol'grazes) and sets off on a daring rescue mission. Along the way, they'll befriend a whole new species and form some very unlikely alliances, all while navigating bizarre and dangerous terrain. 

Can they manage to save Kalac? Or are they doomed to warp through the galaxy forever? 

With brilliant prose and unforgettable characters, For the Love of Gelo is filled with adventure, laughs, and a ton of heart.

"O'Donnell's debut is an imaginative, smart and laugh-out-loud adventure. Chorkle is charming, and its alien perspective on the human invaders and the ensuing culture clash never falters."-- Kirkus
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A few months after Space Rocks! (2014), an explosion drains Gelo's power supply and disables its stealth shield. Lead by Chorkle's originator (parent), a mission to the planet Kyral takes off to find aid. However, a prolonged silence from the mission crew prompts Chorkle to launch his own rescue mission with the help of his three human friends. On Kyral, civilization is not nearly as friendly as Chorkle expects, and a hostile stowaway only complicates matters. Witty writing and engaging character dynamics balance the story's action-based plot, which will have readers cheering for (and against) various aliens as another epic battle unfolds.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2010 Booklist"
