The trouble with the Three-Headed Aldebaran Dust Devils is that they dust things
up and, if you happen to have one as a friend, it࡬ways you that gets the blame
on account of them being totally invisible!

Felicity Frobisher learns this to her cost one morning when a patch of her bedroom
wallpaper starts wavering like a mirage on a hot summerडy ?and out pops Flummff.

Flummff is from a very dusty planet around the red giant star Aldebaran. He gets Felicity
Frobisher ?the most well-behaved, polite little girl at Inchley Manor School - into all
sorts of trouble. But she has fun too as she travels down wormholes, beats the school
bullies, uses a "Pan-Galactic Speaking Dictionary" to wow her French teacher, and even
visits the International Space Station.

Anything it seems is possible if you are friends with a Three-Headed Aldebaran Dust Devil!

(And, boys, if you think this book is for girls, Felicity Frobisher's co-star, Flummff, is a
boy, who is very, very bad. So, if you want to know how to really annoy girls
and get them into lots of trouble, read this book!)

who devoured it in two sittings."
