The Attack of the Frozen Woodchucks by Dan Elish

When Jimmy's dad swears he saw a giant woodchuck in the park, Jimmy is not surprised; his dad is always telling wild stories in hopes of publishing them someday. Even though two-year-old Imogene backs up Dad's story, Jimmy doesn't believe it . . . until his father disappears overnight and his mother swears a furry creature brushed past her while she slept. When the police won't listen, Jimmy enlists the help of his detective-minded friend William, the great-great-great-great-nephew of President Taft, and William's purple flying go-cart. When the boys need reinforcements, they call on ten-year-old self-made rocket scientist Janice Claytooth. In Janice's high-tech space craft, the team discovers Grindleprick, a world where the woodchucks already do what they would do if they could: chuck all the wood they could!
Jimmy's search for his father ultimately turns into a desperate attempt to save our earth from Grindleprick's fate. When Jimmy and his companions uncover the reason behind the giant woodchucks, the plot leads them closer to home than they could've imagined.
