Publisher's summary Edit
An entire planet vanishes — a planet that was owned by Tellac Inc., a galactic company that turns whole worlds into mines and factories for their own profit. K9 is sent to find the missing planet. He finds instead a new universe and a very strange new breed of men . . .
- K9 encounters antelope, beetles, bison, butterflies, giraffe, pygmy hippos, zebras, and other Earth creatures.
- K9 continues to pilot the vessel K-NEL.
- This is the fourth and last in a series of illustrated children's storybooks written by David Martin, co-creator of K9.
Audio release Edit
- A reading of the story was released as an audiobook on the The Adventures of K9 audio cd read by John Leeson. The audio cd was published by Explore Multimedia.
