Cooper can't believe that he and Molly are related, let alone twins.

They are so different! He loves junk food. She calls it empty calories. He likes to crack jokes. She was born without a sense of humour.

He's busy making plans for his gross-out tenth birthday party while Molly would rather take their dog, Jack, for a healthy walk. Their differences don't make sense. Until Molly tells him she's an alien who has been sent to protect Cooper and help him fulfil his destiny because one day he's going to save the universe.

Cooper thinks Molly must be setting him up on some kind of prank TV show. Maybe she's got a sense of humour after all? But then intergalactic bounty hunters arrive in Peregrination (population: 203) and strange things start happening to Cooper.

Either he's crazy or he really is in danger. And if he is in danger, so is the universe ...


All is normal in Cooper’s life as preparations are underway for his gross-out 10th birthday party, to be shared with his super-straight twin sister Molly.

Well, that is until Cooper uncovers the truth about his life - that rather than being his twin sister Molly is in fact an Alien. So is his dog

Jack and many other people in his town - all there to protect Cooper who is destined to save the Universe.

Maybe that’s why Molly is always watching him? Could it explain the strange clock in his head that tells him the exact time?

This is a fast-paced and wacky intergalactic adventure that is a whole lot of fun.

It will appeal mainly to boys aged between 9 and 12.
