Teaching your little brother his first word—dibs—is funny. Until he starts calling dibs on everything, from your parents’ bed to a real airplane to the White House. What’s next? Calling dibs on the moon? Sure enough, Julian’s little brother, Clancy, calls dibs on a rocket ship and blasts off! Julian is glad to have Earth all to himself…at first. But when Clancy doesn’t come back, Julian starts to miss him, and to suspect that something is wrong up in space. Can Julian harness the power of dibs to rescue his little brother?
