Our Synopsis

No Spoilers

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

Young children will find that outer space is no farther than their fingertips when they stroke a serpent's scaly stomach, touch a strange hairy plant, scratch and sniff an alien fungus--and more--while helping Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio search for the crystal they need to fix their spacecraft

C-3PO and R2-D2 are on an unidentified planet about to leave for Tatooine when R2 points out their ship needs a new supply of energy crystals before it can take off. On their way to a cave where the crystals can be found they put an orange serpent to sleep by stroking its belly, escape a carnivorous plant Threepio accidentally discovers under a rock, and touch the paw of a furry four-armed creature which in turn points the way to the cave. Finally they find the crystals they need near a smelly orange fungus. The droids use the crystals to refuel their ship and blast off for Tatooine.
