AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'There's something about that rocket ship ride in Dad's toy shop. Why is It that every time something goes wrong Tom ends up inside the rocket ship where something very special happens? Who are those strange, wonderful aliens he sees on the movie screen inside the ride? Are they real? And what about this book Mum is writing about the family? How's Tom going to cope with the fact that all his mates will know that he plugged up the toilet? Should he be humiliated or proud? All these worries ... and now Dad has to give up the alien toy shop. Tom needs to go inside the rocket ship and have a think about life. Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for his dopey sister to go there too. And Dad needs a bit of shake up' (Source: author's website).
