Product description

It’s deepest night on Astra’s spaceship, zooming through the endless midnight of space. Her family are all snoring in their sleeping pods – but Astra is WIDE AWAKE. So she goes off exploring, which is a good thing, because the the ship is in deep trouble. It’s been knocked off course and invaded by a gang of Poglites: an alien salvage crew searching for spoons! But the Poglites and Astra are forced to team up when they find something sinister lurking in the canteen. Sure, they’re cakes; but they’re not sweet. You won’t get to eat them. But they might just eat you…
