Series Name: Red Rhino
Trey can’t play soccer unless he comes up with a project for the science fair. When he and his dog Max go for a walk in the woods to think, they meet some unlikely new friends with a big problem of their own—their spaceship is broken, and they aren’t sure how to fix it. Finding a solution isn’t easy, but it might give Trey the project idea that he needs.
