Armed with a vast selection, he builds a rocket, packs a bag and blasts off. When he arrives on Mars, however he finds a parade of aliens from other planets, before he ingeniously solves the Martians' noise problems!

Bright, busy illustrations provide ample material for discussion, filled with a jumble of familiar objects and extraordinary aliens.
