Astra is wide awake on a spaceship taking her to her new life on the planet Nova Mundi. But Astra shouldn’t be awake right now, because it takes 199 years to reach this new world from Earth.

While her family are all snoring in their sleeping pods, Astra, along with her new friend Philbeam, go off exploring. They soon find out the ship is in deep trouble. Not only has the ship been knocked off course, it’s also been invaded by a gang of Poglites, an alien salvage crew. However, they are the least of her worries; something far more sinister is lurking in the canteen . . . CAKES, like you’ve never seen before, with wide mouths and lots of shiny, little teeth!

This action-packed, funny tale will leave your taste buds tingling for more. Be prepared to never look at a fairy cake in the same way again.
