Description
DAVID BOULDER, EIGHT YEARS OLD, IS TOO BRIGHT, AND TOO HEALTHY, BECAUSE OUT OF THE FUTURE, A FRIEND CAME BACK AND DOCTORED HIS GENES AT BIRTH. He is abducted by IDDI KLU an alien of a canine race which is a member of the galactic civilization. Iddi Klu requires David’s help to find and fix a glitch in his ship’s command module. The faulty command computer is the cause of Iddi’s crash-landing on earth. David’s reward is a citizenship in the galactic civilization and a fully paid grant for its school. David, standing with one foot on earth and with one foot in the advanced society of the galaxy, is torn by conflicts of conscience. He falls into feelings of despair. He feels as if he were home alone since his new talents are widening the gulf between his rapidly expanding mind and that of his friends and parents. David goes through a separation syndrome. There is serious support around from his older friend Skip and in a way from Buddy, a dog, which he has caused accidentally to become telepathic. David is bright, exceptionally bright and healthy. He has not yet learned to cope with frustration up to the moment he becomes a galactic citizen. At first it’s just a lot of fun, but then the Earthboy plus Galactic becomes disoriented. David develops a separation syndrome, which pushes him to drop the scholarship. He even tries to destroy the telepathic link to the galactic society
