"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.
