Adventures on the Planet Sugar
Sugars live on the Planet Sugar. Although they look pretty much like us, Sugars are funny characters with colorful cakes on their heads.
They like to do the same things as humans: dancing, painting, playing, swimming… but above all:
Their cakes are very funny because they grow when they eat and they become tiny again whilst they do things. Inside their cakes, Sugars save the energy they need to run on properly; because they, like us, could not move without energy.

It grew, grew and grew...
And it did not become small! That was not what other cakes did…
Paula’s cake became so big that it almost did not fit inside her room. Of course, since it was so big, it weighed a lot, so the girl began to tremble with so much effort.
Her parents, seeing her tremble, climbed up Scare Mountain to the Crystal Palace, in search of the Tutticolori Goblins. They ran so fast that they almost had to fix all three…
