Troy laughs. "The North Pole is a long way from here."
   "Our spaceship is very fast!" Googol says.
   Troy's eyes light up. "You have a spaceship?"
   "It's on the roof of your house," Googolplex says.
   Troy looks at Pippa. "We could go with them if they promise to have us back before dinner."

Googol and Googolplex are on a mission to learn about Earth by collecting a number of items including a blackbird’s song, snowballs and a chocolate bar. Pippa and Troy are happy to help, especially when they get to ride to the North Pole in a spaceship. But when they return, Martin, the bully next-door, sees something that he shouldn't.

Down the Chimney with Googol and Googoplex is the first of three books in the Googol and Googolplex series.
Book two is Under the Sea with Googol and Googolplex. Book three is Over the Rainbow with Googol and Googolplex.
