Akiko’s back! No longer simply a shy fourth-grade girl, she’s become an intergalactic leader, taking her band of would-be heroes on a quest to find a kidnapped prince!
Armed with a map showing the way to Alia Rellapor’s castle, Akiko, Mr. Beeba, Spuckler, Gax, and Poog are nearing the end of their mission. But first they have to scale the Great Wall of Trudd.
