When Felicity Frobisher is paid a visit by a Three-Headed Aldebran Dust Devil, she has the most extraordinary day of her life.

The trouble with Three-Headed Aldebran Dust Devils is they dust things up and if you happen to have one as a friend it's always you that gets the blame on account of them being totally invisible. Travelling through worm-holes, beating the school bullies, using the Pan-galactic Speaking Dictionary to wow her French teacher, and even visiting an International Space Station - it's all possible when you are friends with a Three-Headed Aldebran Dust Devil.
