Whales on Stilts by M. T. Anderson
An extremely silly book! On Career Day Lily meets her dad's boss who is half human/half whale. Larry matter of factly tells Lily about the plans he has that will allow whales to walk on land and take over the world. In fact, Lily's own dad is part of the crew making stilts for the whales while another group is designing lasers to destroy towns as they infiltrate the Earth. Although he has been told of this plan Lily's father is happily convinced of Larry's goodness and is not worried at all. It is up to Lily and her best friends Katie and Jasper to save the world!
