It's Mika speaking. He has fallen out of his spaceship and landed upside down in an apple tree in Joe's garden. It's hard to say who is more surprised, Joe or Mika. Mika has never seen an egg, a fish or a vacuum cleaner. Joe is amazed that Mika can read his thoughts.

And when Mika vanishes, as mysteriously as he came, Joe finds the new baby brother he has been waiting for has finally arrived - a new being as astonished at life on earth as Mika himself.
