Summary:
Red, a quirky, headstrong 10-year-old, longs to live in her own perfect paradise far away from her annoying foster family. But when a UFO mistakenly kidnaps her, Red finds herself farther away than she could have possibly imagined-- across the galaxy and aboard an enormous spaceship owned by the Aquilari, an ancient creature with a taste for rare and unusual treasures. Before Red can be discovered as a stowaway, the great ship crashes on a small deserted planet, leaving her marooned with a menagerie of misfit aliens. With her newfound friend, a small gray alien named Tawee, Red must find a way to survive the hostile castaways, evade the ravenous wildlife and contend with Goose, the planet's grumpy, felinoid custodian. Surely this can't be the paradise she's looking for.

The story weaves together a lot of the fun stories we watched and read in the '80s and '90s and spins them into something new." -- Kazu Kibuishi, creator of Amulet, Flight, and Explorer<br> <br> "Filled with genuine sense of childlike awe and style of story, art, and filmmaking reminiscent of Jeff Smith's Bone . Eddie Pittman really has the goods." -- Dan Povenmire, co-creator of Disney's Phineas and Ferb <br> <br> "A meeting of everything that is great about comic books...incredible art, spellbinding storytelling, rich characters, fun, adventure, humor...and heart." -- Tom Richmond, Mad Magazine artist and President of the National Cartoonist Society <br>
