Loopy Lucy - Monsters on Mars

Lucy made herself as small as possible and held a hand over her mouth to quieten her heavy breaths. A muffled squeal escaped her lips as six orange fingers reached around the corner of the rover…

Lucy has really landed herself in trouble this time. She snuck a guinea pig onto Mars, and crashed a multi-million-dollar rover!

When Lucy hears the distant roar of another vehicle she looks desperately for somewhere to hide. Who’s driving it? Is someone coming to her rescue, or will it be full of slimy Martian aliens, angry and ready to fight?

Mum trusted Lucy to never go through another portal alone. How will she explain this latest space adventure?
