Imagine you were born in a drought and have never seen the rain. In fact you’re completely terrified of water. And you’re a duck.
WINSTON MCLEAN, 12, is the world’s smartest kid and its youngest astronaut. During his first mission - with his dog Fluffy and piratical friend Katie stowing away – his spacecraft is sabotaged and crash lands on an alien planet, whose inhabitants work all the time, no time for play. The three will only make it back home if they can depose the tyrannical leader, foil a plan to destroy Earth with a giant umbrella, and if Winston can learn the one thing he has never had time for - how to have fun!
