Theme: Is it fact or fiction? It’s not always easy to tell.

While her third grade classmates are sprouting seeds in paper cups, Holly has a more ambitious, innovative science project in mind.

LeVar promotes the book’s theme of far-fetched fact or fiction by investigating UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects). Viewers follow a boy and his father who discover strange artifacts, visit a farmer who grows huge pumpkins, and hear a first hand account of a UFO report.
