If there's one thing kids can never get enough of, it's a good space story. Performed here by the veteran Dina Pearlman, with a serious yet perfectly engaging delivery, is the fun and mischievous story of young Barbary and her fuzzy, little secret. After a few failed attempts, Barbary gets the chance to travel to the orbital space station Einstein. Once there, however, she realizes that if the secret passenger she packed gets discovered, she will surely get sent back to Earth. Barbary, full of aliens, space travel, and high jinks, is a wild and fun ride perfect for any young listener.
Twelve-year-old Barbary is emigrating from Earth to Einstein, an orbital space station. Researchers and diplomats on board the station are preparing to meet the first alien spacecraft to visit the solar system. Barbary wants to stay with her new sister, Heather, and Heather's father Yoshi. But Barbary is keeping a secret, and if her secret is discovered, she could be sent back to Earth.
