Story Summary

An alien comically disguised as a human offers a little girl candy to get in his spaceship, which she does believing that she is simply going to witness the beauty of his home planet then come home. When she realizes that she is a captive, she steals a spaceship and offers candy to two alien children to help her operate it. Unfortunately they follow their parent's rules better than she did.
