To my husband, Stephen, and our two space aliens, Izabel and Sebastian. -N.K.
Chapter One Scavenger Hunt
Googol and Googolplex have circled the earth three times in their spaceship. They come from a place with lots of corners and edges and the round earth confuses them. There seems to be no end or beginning to it.
We must land, Googol tells Googolplex.
Yes. But where? Googolplex asks.
Googolplex spins his head around three times as he looks out all the windows of their spaceship.
How about on top of that big red house? Googolplex says.
It is a very nice house with lots of square windows and a triangular roof.
Perfect, Googol answers. He steers their spaceship towards the house and lands on the peak of the roof.
Perfect, says Googolplex. He rolls out of the spaceship on his super-retractable self-adhesive wheels. Then he rolls right along the peak of the roof until he is next to the chimney. This must be the back door.
Googol pulls himself up on top of the chimney and stares down the square hole. It is just the right shape and size for a square-headed robot.
Perfect, says Googol. Let s go in.
At the other end of the chimney is the Sinclairs family room. Pippa and Troy Sinclair are sitting in this room, arguing about which show they should watch on TV. Pippa is five and she likes to watch cartoons. Troy is eight and he likes to watch cooking shows and sports. It is difficult for them to agree on a show. But it is not difficult for them to agree that they can hear something coming down their chimney.
Googol and Googolplex roll out of the fireplace onto the carpet. The corners of their square red heads, square blue shoulders and triangular yellow toes are covered in soot.
Pippa claps her hands together. Santa s helpers!
Don t be silly, Pippa. It s not Christmastime, Troy tells her. They re Martians!
Googol s head spins around three times, and Googolplex bleeps and blurps noisily.
We are not Martians! We are Googol and Googolplex, Googol says.
We are looking for snow, Googolplex says.
Pippa and Troy look at each other. Snow!
It s almost summer! Troy says. There s no snow around here at this time of year!
Oh, dear. Googol gives three sad beeps.
Dear me, Googolplex says. Maybe this list of ours isn t going to be so easy to fill, after all.
What list? Troy asks.

There is a whirring sound inside of Googolplex. A bunch of lights flash on his stomach, and then a long piece of paper slides out of his mouth.
Troy grabs this list and begins to read it.
Six snowballs, four sand dollars, a tutu, the song of a blackbird, two peacock feathers, a chocolate bar, all the colors of the rainbow.
