In this sequel to Eddie the Electron, Eddie is free from the balloon which held his Helium atom, and he's off on a new adventure, as his lighter-than-air atom rises above the houses and trees... All the way to the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere, where sky and space meet.

Along the way, Eddie will teach young readers atomic concepts as he reminisces about the creation of his Helium atom, and how it and other Helium atoms are harvested and used. Eddie will also teach readers about the Earth's dwindling reserve of Helium, and how vitally important it is to conserve the precious gas.
