How to Solve the Mystery of Crying


One day a super space storm destroyed my bright-purple garden. It was a nightmare! And you know what? Even after the rain had stopped, liquid just kept on drip-drop dripping out of my laser-eyes. I worried I was going to rust. But no-bot-ty knew how to make the liquid stop. So I jumped on my scooter and vroom-vroomed off to Earth, hoping to solve this complete mystery. 


Join Novo in this heartwarming adventure as he discovers the tears we make and how they can help us heal.
