There’s a Martian in the Opera House!
By Nancy Steele Brokaw
 
Oonda is a lonely Martian. When she sneaks onto the space rover of Evil Industialist Maximillian vonStaptrap and ends up on Earth, she realizes that she’s in big trouble if she doesn’t find a friend. Will the selfish Soprano Starry Sing Sing and the timid Tommy Tenderheart the Tenor be able to step up and save her?
