Garcia & Colette go exploring
Best friends Garcia and Colette are eager to go exploring- only they can't agree on where to go. Garcia loves everything about space (stars! planets! meteors!) and Colette is obsessed with the sea (sand! coral! fish!). So Garcia builds a rocket ship, Colette constructs a submarine, and they wish each other well on their travels. But even though they find some amazing things on their journeys, the friends quickly realise they each left something very important back home...
