This is a cute story. Fanciful with creatures such as butterscooters instead of butterflies, because they move using their wheels.
It’s a tale that reminds me of the common saying, “Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.” Making the wish and getting ready for the journey is fun…until the kid gets bored!
Ah, typical for not just kids but adults to get tired of the learning about it part. Better to DO, right? And it’s entertaining watching QB9 discover that hurling yourself into a whole new situation isn’t always fun and easy, even when pursuing your heart’s desire.
Here is the description from Amazon:
On planet Zoot birthdays are a big deal, filled with parties, gifts,friends and lots of treats. Today is QB9’s birthday, but he knows there will be no treats, no day filled with the sound of his friend’s laughter and no party. Poor QB9 has no friends. It’s not that he doesn’t want friends, more that friends don’t want him. When his parents give him a WISH-A-MA-GIG, a special device that grants every wish, he asks for the only thing he wants — one true friend.
The WISH-A-MA-GIG sends QB9 on a journey to travel to Earth where he will find his friend.
Unfortunately, while preparing for the journey, QB9 grows bored studying Earth’s cultures and customs. He asks himself, “If I just wing it, what could go wrong?”
As it turns out, getting to Earth is the easy part. QB9 quickly learns “just winging it” was not such a good idea after all.
If you have a imaginative child, they will love this story. You couldn't get a better story for them.
