In the third book in the chapter book series about a young Indian American girl who loves science and has a big imagination, Sejal and the gang soar through outer space—perfect for fans of The Magic School Bus and Over the Moon!

But getting to Neptune might be harder than she and Ash think, especially when they find a couple of stowaways in their spaceship…
