Zita and her best friend Joseph are playing in a paddock when something falls out of the sky. Is it a meteorite? Inside they find a strange gadget with a bright red button. Joseph urges Zita NOT to push it, but that’s not Zita’s style. Suddenly to her horror, a tentacled creature appears and snatches Joseph! They vanish.
Although still in shock, Zita knows what she has to do. Press the button again….
This is where her Spacegirl adventures begin. Robots, strange creatures large and small, fear and new friendships follow. She has to find Joseph and bring him home. But time is ticking. There is an asteroid streaking towards the strange planet she finds herself on and everyone and everything will do anything to escape it.
The 1st in this Graphic Novel series, this was an action-packed, robot riddled and monster mashed adventure. Zita not only has to find Joseph, she has to avoid multiple attacks on her and her new, albeit odd, friends. A fun read.
