This is what Theo Brown wonders when he enters a secret laboratory and makes a new, furry friend – a racoon named Cornelius (Corny, for short). Unbeknownst to Theo, Corny is actually a disguised alien from the planet Nebulizer, who longs to get back to the forest and discover the fate of the remainder of his crew.
Corny’s days are numbered – the evil Dr. who holds him captive has plans to eliminate all of the lab’s creatures, including Corny.
Can Theo save Corny from certain death? Will Corny ever get back to planet Nebulizer? More importantly, will Theo ever get the chance to witness Corny’s nifty little paws manipulate a Gamebox controller?
