              Kids adore Colin Thompson's brand of off-the-planet humour. Now here's an off-the-planet series to make them laugh even more! Three years ago, Stark Contrast volunteered his family to live on the moon. Since then, the reality TV show about their adventures has become the most pop...ular show on earth and the Contrasts are mega famous. But three years inside a big plastic bubble is a long time, and the four of them - Stark, his wife, Laura, and their children, Crocus and Jack - are way beyond bored. They just want to go home. The trouble is, none of them know how to fly the spaceship, and it's not programmed to take them home for another two years. In Watch This Space, with the help of the robot that was sent with them, the Contrast family manage to break into the spaceship and escape ...except that instead of flying back to earth, the spaceship heads off into deep space. The series will be their attempts to return home via a series of incredible, ridiculous, scary and just plain weird planets.

              When Peter and his friend Festival destroyed the book called HOW TO LIVE FOREVER so it could no longer work its terrible spell, they didn't know that destroying such a powerful book would have unintended consequences. Now, the world is in the worst drought ever - major rivers dri...ed up, and water rationed to a single litre per person a day with talk of less. Festival comes back from the world inside the museum to get Peter. The river they reversed is drowning Festival's world and they need to re-create the book to reverse the water flow. Neither can remember all of the book, but hopefully by working together they will be able to recall every word. Can they reverse the water flow so that it rains in Peter's world again? And if they recreate the evil book, can they entomb it so that it can never been accessed again?
