Googol and Googolplex are on a mission to learn about Earth by collecting a number of items including a blackbirdís song, snowballs and a chocolate bar. Pippa and Troy are happy to help, especially when they get to ride to the North Pole in a spaceship. But when they return, Martin, the bully next-door, sees something that he shouldn't.

Troy laughs. "The North Pole is a long way from here."
   "Our spaceship is very fast!" Googol says.
   Troy's eyes light up. "You have a spaceship?"
   "It's on the roof of your house," Googolplex says.
   Troy looks at Pippa. "We could go with them if they promise to have us back before dinner."
