 Book Four: Amelia, the Snapperjacks and the Molten Maze

Illustrations from Book One

They travel to the blazing Sun. Amelia is scared! How can they possibly land on it? Uglesnoo knows how. But once there, they need to fly underground, into a flaming labyrinth! It’s the only way, to get the next item of their list.   But will they make it out of the treacherous molten maze alive?
She flew to the open door.  She looked down. The fiery surface blended and spun, Amelia grew green.
“Come on, let’s go!  We need to get forty jars of Snapperjack honey. Then we’ll be another step closer to rescuing Noolong!”
“I can’t do it!”  yelled Amelia.  “The thing is Uggie, I’m scared of heights! I always have been. I thought with the flying shoes I might be okay, but I’m not.  I can’t do this.  I really can’t do this.”
Uglesnoo flew back in disappointed.  “Well I suppose I’ll have to go by myself after all…”
Amelia watched him fly back out.  I really want to go out there, but I just can’t…Maybe if I practise flying inside the spaceship…
“Arrgh, Amelia help, help!”

“Uggie what is it?”
“My flying shoes aren’t working.  I’m falling.  You have to save me!”
“What!  Don’t worry.  I’m on my way!”
Uglesnoo plummeted down.  Amelia dove after him.  Down, down. 
“Uggie, I’m almost here…  There, I’ve got you!”
She grabbed a tentacle and pulled him up. 

Book Five: Amelia, the Magolytes and the Victory Vines


Now on Mars, Amelia and Uglesnoo need to trade with the tricky Magolytes. But the Magolytes possess a deadly weapon. Amelia and Uglesnoo find themselves running away… But then they are helped by the mysterious Victory Vines. Ready to blast off from Mars, but there is one more  fiery problem. Will they finally manage to outwit those mad Magolytes?
And with that Uglesnoo bounced out of his squashy purple chair, leaving Amelia in charge.
The spaceship swung to the left.
“Amelia what are you doing?”
“Nothing, why?”
“That’s the problem, you’re supposed to steer.”
“Err okay,” Amelia grabbed hold of the control stick and moved it to the right.  The spaceship tipped to the right and a surprised Uglesnoo found himself tumbling to the other side of the spaceship.  Panicking Amelia moved the control stick to the left.  The spaceship tipped left and then fell on its side.  Uglesnoo went somersaulting past her head. “Amelia, you’re driving like the maddest Martian Magoltye, under a double Martian moon!  This is a tiny spaceship, not a mobile space-city!” yelled Uglesnoo.  “Just move the control stick a little to the left and right, when needed.  Here let me show you!
Uglesnoo picked himself up and ran to the controls. He grabbed them, showing Amelia how to make small movements with the control stick to keep them on course.
“Okay that’s it.  Phew, you’ve finally got it,” said Uglesnoo, releasing the controls back to Amelia, as she glared at him.
In no time at all, a dusty red planet came closer and closer until Amelia saw something truly shocking.  A towering wall of red rock lay dead ahead. What was that enormous thing in front of them and more importantly how could she avoid smashing into it?

Book Six: Amelia, the Jubs and the Case for Peace


The quest to save Uglesnoo’s sister is going well. Now on the planet Jupiter, Amelia and Uglesnoo must collect ten Blazebolts. But Jupiter’s aliens – the Jubs – are at war! Uglesnoo’s spaceship takes a hit. They need to make an emergency landing on Jupiter for repairs. After landing, they find themselves in the middle of the fight.  What can they do?

“Do I aim for this red spot?” wondered Amelia. “Uggie,” she called out.  “This red spot thing.  Is it some sort of giant landing pad?”
 No answer.  Uggie must be busy.  The engine rattled and groaned even louder than ever.  “That does not sound good,” thought Amelia.  “I hope we make it.  At least we’re close now.”
They were getting closer.  She headed for the red spot.  Soon all she could see was red and then she felt something else, a strong wind.   Their little red spaceship rocked wildly, in the  very strong winds.  At the back of the spaceship came a yell from Uglesnoo.
“Amelia, Jumping Jupiter, what are you doing?”  He rushed to the front of the controls and grabbed the control stick from Amelia, pushing the stick sharply to the right.  “Why are you driving towards that enormous storm?”
“I thought that red spot was Jupiter’s landing area?”
“Are you kidding me? No, it’s a huge storm that’s thousands of miles long.  If we go into that, we and the spaceship come out in tiny bits! Jumping Jupiter, I only hope I steer us out of it in time.”
Uglesnoo pushed  the control stick hard to the right and the spaceship flew away from the storm.  The winds grew less and less until finally the spaceship was still.  Still…and silent.  Amelia noticed the silence first of all.
“What happened to the engine Uggie?” she asked.
Uglesnoo’s purple face paled to pink.  “Oh no!  The engine has died.”
Uglesnoo and Amelia stared at each other in horror.
The spaceship dropped like a stone.

Book Seven: Amelia, the Satsuts and the Oblivion Potion


Now it’s onto Saturn. The Satsuts are friendly, but enemies are here as well. They need to collect the item from the list to save Uglesnoo’s sister. Disaster hits when Amelia tastes something forbidden.  Is there any hope left for the quest?

“Now that was a nice lunch,” said Squeek patting his rounded egg-like stomach.  “You know Uglesnoo will probably be back from the time tower soon and I know you’re in a hurry to get to Noolong.  So, I will go and get the Satsut apothecary for you, as well as the Znot medicine for your sister.  You stay here and enjoy the picnic and I’ll be back in one tiny space-tick.”
Moments later Amelia was left alone, wondering which strange drink or dessert to try next.  Then all of a sudden, she saw a bright flash of purple.
“What was that?” Amelia wondered.  Curious she flew away from the table through the tall pink grass in search of the purple object.
She flew in and around the pink grass, pushing it aside as the flew through it.  But nothing. Whatever it was had disappeared.
Amelia gave up and returned to the picnic.  Hopefully Uglesnoo would be back soon and she hoped he wouldn’t be in too much trouble.
Amelia then smelt something.  The most delicious smell she had ever smelt.  Something like chocolate and blueberries, all mixed together.  Amelia flew towards the smell.  A tall crystal jug stood on the picnic blanket, filled with a deep blue liquid, surrounded by small crystal goblets…

Book Eight: Amelia, the Urano and the Seer of all Time

ILL3-PG13 copy-2

Uranus is the most mysterious planet of them all. Here they face their biggest obstacle. They need to find something that does not exist. Or does it? Uglesnoo struggles to believe. Amelia faces huge challenges to get the next item off the list. What happens if they can’t find what they seek?

Uggie, what are the aliens called that live on Uranus? asked Amelia curiously. There was a long silence from Uggie. Amelia looked at him.  Uglesnoo seemed worried…
“Uggie, what’s the matter? You should be happy.  We’re just one step away from getting everything that Queen Neep wants for that repelling crystal.”
Uglesnoo sighed heavily,  “Well, space legend tells us of a single creature that lives on Uranus called the Urano.”
“Well, don’t get your hopes up.  Nobody actually lives there.  I’m sure of that. I’ve flown to Uranus many times in search of the so called Urano. But have I ever seen it? Jumping Jupiter, I have not!”
“Well how are we supposed to get this vial of future air, if nobody lives there?  Is there some sort of store where they make these vials of future air?  Maybe we can just go and pick it up? Oooh, maybe we have to bottle the air around Uranus.  We could do that.”
Uglesnoo shook his head. “No that won’t do.  Queen Neep somehow believes in this fantastic space yarn.  She gave me clear instructions.  I have to meet this Urano and somehow get the vial of future air from him, her or it.”
“Well, what does it look like?”
“No-one really knows.  Some mysterious creature with some power to tell you the future.  A sort of seer or oracle.”
Amelia looked blank.
No-one really knows.  Some mysterious creature with some power to tell you the future.  A sort of seer or oracle.”
Amelia looked blank.
“In the olden times on your earth, it would be a high priest or priestess.  But in the case of the Urano, it’s supposed to be some kind of spirit or ghost, that can tell you future events or some such nonsense. One time when I was trading in the Tadpole galaxy I had a chat with this alien -Cruck-was his name.  He was ancient, thousands of years old, with over a hundred eyes and just as many legs.  Ooh…all those eyes and legs gave me the serious creeps…Now, where was I? Ah yes, well this Cruck told me he had met the Urano and was given a bottle of future air from this spirit for some favor he did. But he’s the only alien I’ve ever met that actually believes something something exists on Uranus…”
