“You don’t realize what you have until it’s gone,” she said. “We really should look after this place.”

Emma is cross with her parents. They’ve made a mess of Earth and say they’re too busy to sort it out! Emma decides that the only sensible plan is to find a new planet to live on. Along with her teddies she builds a rocket and heads into space. When she gets there, Emma realizes there are lots of things she misses about Earth like trees, rivers and grandmas! After heading home, Emma thinks about all the ways she can help make the world cleaner and greener.
