On Planet Blipp, beyond the stars, beyond the sun and moon, The world was ruled by music -- but tradition called the tune. The Ancient Songs of ages past were all that could be heard, And no one was allowed to change a single note or word ... So begins the cosmic tale of Sprocc, a young Splingtwanger-player who leaves his home planet, Blipp, in search of musical freedom. Sprocc enters the annual Worst Band in the Universe Competition -- and is launched skyward on an adventure of truly intergalactic proportions. Graeme Base, creator of the best-selling picture booksAnimalia, The Eleventh Hour, The Sign of the Seahorse,andThe Discovery of Dragons,has now created an out-of-this-world fantasy complete with his own music, which he has performed on the enclosed music CD.
