Summary

In the hours before his brother is born, eight year old Joe has an unusual visitor, Mika, who falls out of a spaceship and lands upside down in an apple tree in Joe's garden. Hens, dinosaurs, an astronaut and a white rabbit all play their part in this magical story in which the encounter between Earth-boy and alien opens up the wonders of the universe.

Tender and enchanting as The Little Prince and with the same classic quality, Hello? Is Anybody There? confirms Jostein Gaarder as an exceptional writer for children.
