AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The Twin Stars is a light-hearted book about Twin Blue Stars in the Milky Way who take their job of shining their lights across the night sky very seriously. Until, that is, a large comet convinces them to come travelling with it. When they come to the end of the Milky Way the comet flicks his tail and Chunse and Pouse tumble towards earth and eventually land in the sea. On the sea floor they encounter star fish, a whale and a sea snake. They are very sad to think they are unable to return to their posts in the Milky Way. However, the King of the Seasnakes has a solution. (Source: Book)
