*Do you have at least three freckles on your nose? *Is your birthday in one of the following months: December, March, April, or . . . June? *Can you perform any one of the following three tasks: walk a tightrope, dissect a rat, or Rollerblade backward? . . . Imagine if the future of our planet rested on how you answered the questions above. Well, it just so happens, in Nicola Berry's case it does. Nicola is just your average fifth grader until the day an extraordinarily tall man named Giorgio Giorgiosko interrupts her class. One minute he has her confirming that she can indeed Rollerblade backward, and the next he's sending her off to Planet Globagaskar to plead with the very tall, very spoiled Princess Petronella not to turn Planet Earth into a giant garbage can. Is Nicola up to the task? As sure as the freckles on her nose.
