Jack from Earth

Jack has always known there’s something not quite right about his parents. They move house every year, never seem to sleep – and what’s that weird beeping from the attic? But when Jack goes to investigate the beeping and sets off an inter-galactic distress signal, things get CRAZY REALLY FAST! It turns out that every baddie and bounty hunter in the galaxy thinks he’s an interstellar super-thief. Can Jack convince all the scary guys on his tail that he’s NOT the person they’re after? And can he still get home in time for tea?
