Winner of the Bedfordshire Libraries Children's Book of the Year 2008!
William and his brother Daniel come home from school one day to find their parents have disappeared. It's the first of a series of shocks they have to cope with, not the least of which is finding that their house has been built over an inter-stellar portal.
It's some time before they can solve the mystery of where their parents have gone and why - and in the meantime they have to cope with visiting aliens, chickens, and making their own lunch.
It's not easy. Not easy at all.
