From the bestselling author of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON comes book 2 in an out-of-this-world new series packed with epic adventure, thrilling space travel and forbidden Magic – perfect for gifting.

There is no Magic here on Earth. At least, that’s what you’ve been told… But in an ordinary-looking house in an ordinary-looking village, live a group of children who have just uncovered a secret.

A tiny and helpless Magical Creature lost far from home leads the O’Hero-Smith children on another Starcrossing adventure through the Which Ways and across the galaxy. The children have a plan to get little Bug back to the fiery-ice planet where it belongs, and to prove to their parents that they can be trusted with Magic along the way…

But a witch’s curse, venomous snowsnakes and a gang of fighter robots are waiting for them through the Which Ways.

The fate of the galaxy is once again in their hands – they better not mess it up!

A family with a Magical secret …
A child with a powerful Gift …
A story that is out of this world …
