A big disappointment. From the author of the beloved The Hat, and The Mitten books, The Umbrella, Town Mouse Country Mouse, Daisy Comes Home, and Berlioz the Bear, comes this story of a mission to restore a malfunctioning planet in outer space. When the space centre’s robot can’t do the job, Hedgie takes off to unplug the volcanic crater so all the aliens flying by in their saucers can once more enjoy the beautiful flowers fed by the life-giving sparkles. Yes, it is as bizarre as it sounds.
