When two intrepid friends can't agree on where to go, they set off on their own. But both realize exploring together would be more fun. Friends Garcia and Colette can't agree on where to go exploring. Garcia's determined to go outer space but Colette is certain the ocean would be much better, so they decide to head out on their own. Garcia builds a rocket while Colette builds a submarine. They each pack their gear and a lot of sandwiches and embark on their journeys. But when they arrive in space and deep under the sea, they realize both places are lonely without a friend. Luckily, when they get home, they find a compromise-a place full of stars and sand that they can enjoy together.

"Little listeners who love to explore their world will have fun with narrator Christina Moore's lively portrayal of two friends looking for adventure. Neither can agree which is better, exploring the sea or roving in space, so they split up. Colette dives down in her submarine, and Garcia rockets off into space. Moore's narration lets listeners hear their initial amazement and eventual disappointment as they realize that adventures are a lot less fun when you don't have your best friend along. Kids who have a hard time with friends who don't have the same ideas about what games to play next may find something to learn from Garcia and Colette. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
