Category: Edition 2022

An older brother’s life is tough, especially when dealing with a troublemaker as a sister! In the middle of the night, Peter, a young space nerd, discovers that Anne, his little sister all spice and fantasy, has disappeared. Immediately looking for him, he is magically catapulted to Starry Field, where the Sleep Man and Ronzolino, an incredible talking beetle, convince him that Anne is being held captive on the Moon by the evil Moon Man. To save his sister from the clutches of this lunar monster, he will need the help of a “dream team” (so to speak!), made up of the Man of sleep, a tender old man suffering from sudden narcolepsy, and Ronzolino, who pretends to be dead at first danger. Peter thus finds himself in a fantastic space adventure to free Anne and thwart the evil plan for the conquest of the Universe by the Moon Man.
