"Lawrence of Arabia" is a very fancy name for a lizard, but Larry isn't your ordinary lizard. He's the size of a small child and has lots of wisdom to share with his new friend Oscar.

Oscar is having a hard time. His grandfather "Grumps" has recently died, and his parents aren't getting along. But Larry encourages him to talk about his feelings and makes him laugh again. And as the two go on amazing adventures across space, he helps Oscar cope with his loss.

Larry magically turns a tree in Oscar's garden into a spaceship. Over the course of a year, he takes Oscar on several trips to his home world, Tarastaria, a distant planet populated by trolls, monkeys, and yeti-like "gonks."

Although Oscar has a great time exploring Tarastaria with his new friends, he knows they're unhappy. The land is ruled by Emperor Brummelfritz (a.k.a. Bumface), a tyrant who frequently locks his subjects in the dungeon. With Oscar's encouragement and the help of a monkey named Gloria and a gonk named Horatio, the citizens finally find the courage to stand up to the emperor. But will Oscar be able to face his own challenges back on Earth?
