A Close Encounters inspired story for under-fives from best-selling picture book creator David Litchfield.
A little girl witnesses an alien spaceship landing at Cotton Rock near her house. She visits the spaceship and meets a young alien but is called home by her parents. She draws a picture of the alien she met and keeps returning to Cotton Rock as she grows up, in the hope that the UFO will come back. Eventually, after many years, she's got a son and a granddaughter of her own and she's starting to give up hope...
This new blockbuster from best-selling author David Litchfield is a tear-jerking story about never stopping believing and the importance of family.
