When his fortune cookie cracks open and a tiny pink alien steps out, Richard Bickerstaff has a hunch that he’s about to get more than a Chinese dinner. And he’s right! Aric, his bossy extraterrestrial friend, needs Richard’s help–again. He’s got to keep pollution-loving aliens from turning Earth into a Toxic Waste Theme Park.

The trouble is, they’ve already started—and they’re moving at warp speed! Can Richard and Aric move even faster, and stop the total trashing of the planet?
