'Asteriskos' means 'a little star' in Greek. One night a strange guest comes to Jake's bedroom:
"A tiny ball of fire that wanders to and fro,
I do what I desire, I always come and go.
I ride the rays of starlight and in the sunshine fly.
To Earth I only come at night, my home is the sky."
And here the adventure begins!
