An irresistible little green alien lands on earth in this sweet story by the prize-winning, renowned creator of the Percy the Park Keeper series. PB and CD. Q Pootle 5 is on his way to a moon party when his rocket falls to Earth in need of some repairs! Q Pootle 5 thinks he knows what the problem is, in fact he is sure. The problem is that the rocket is broken, it needs a new rocket booster. But where on earth will this little alien find a rocket booster ? A green earthing comes along but he can't help and neither can three birds. Perhaps Colin the Cat might be able to help -- when he's finished his dinner that is!
