Barry came to save the world, but he’s been stuck down the back of the couch

Barry may be no larger than a can of beans, but his powers are awesome. The trouble is he has been trapped down the back of the sofa for over fifty years unable to do the job he was built for. His creators have gone back to their own planet and without his control the Earth is gradually falling apart. Floods, droughts, wars and reality TV are only a few of the things that are threatening the whole of civilisation. With only a bright red lipstick to help him, can Barry emerge from the darkness and save the world before it is too late?

Reviews

Quirky and original, this story injects humour into the climate change debate...expect the unexpected. Suitable for four to eight-year-olds.

Dave Hackett, Herald Sun
