Tinker and Tom can't get to sleep one night, so they gaze out the window. Suddenly a star streaks through the sky--a baby star that's lost and looking for its mother, says Tom--and lands in their backyard. And from a spaceship that looks more like a trash can pops the Star Baby. Tinker and Tom prompltly begin their determined mission to fix the damaged spsceship sp the Star Baby can return home. Even run-ins with Fluffy the cat and Tinker's father can't stop the two from pounding out the dents and creating special rocket fuel. A boy and a bear find a Star Baby in their back yard and try to fix its spaceship so that it can return to its mother.
