Read in August, 2011

Zita is playing with her friend Joseph when they find a fallen meteorite, wedged within is a red button. Zita cannot resist and is appalled when on pressing the button Joseph is yanked through a gateway out of their reality by mechanical tentacles. After a moment of reflection she presses the button and jumps after him into a world of strange creatures 3 days away from being hit by an annihilating asteroid. In search of Joseph she meets strange creatures and makes friends such as the space traveller Piper who lulls enemies to sleep playing his pipe, One the Heavily Armoured Mobile Battle Orb, ostracised because he isn't a team player and Pizzicato the enormous mouse who hates his name. Bewitchingly cute, Hatke's drawings and story create a world that enchanted both me and my 7 year old daughter.
