A squirrel, a hot dog stand, the planet Jupiter...what will get shrunk next?
After Tom moves in with his grandmother next to the Bywater-by-Sea Model Village, he makes a wish on a shooting star and gets the curious ability to shrink things. The first thing he shrinks is Jupiter, then some sheep and a boat.
But without Jupiter in place, the Earth is slowly being drawn towards the Sun. With the angry (and miniaturised) school bully yelling from his pocket, Tom has to return Jupiter and save Earth -- all while trying to make friends in his new home.
Debut author Fleur Hitchcock has written a hugely imaginative and quirky story that is good, clean fun.
