While investigating a complaint about an oversized house, which mysteriously appeared in his neighbourhood, Ken meets the eccentric and angry owner who rather than conforming to city building codes tries to bribe Ken by granting him four wishes. At first, Ken dismisses the peculiar home owner’s suggestion as nonsense but soon learns, when a careless wish threatens to consume Leaf’s backyard greenhouse and the entire neighbourhood, that the homeowner is more than what he seems. To save Leaf’s heirloom tomatoes Ken is forced to make a carefully worded wish, but the results are not exactly as in intended.

While on a tour of Space Park in California, Ken Likeley is given a rather odd souvenir by an annoying member of his tour group. Ken thinks nothing of it until an extraterrestrial turns up at his house claiming to be from the asteroid Oumuamua and demands Ken turn the souvenir over to it. Ken refuses until Planet, Ken’s neighbour’s dog, takes control of the situation.

Ken Likeley, is having breakfast when he bites down on something hard. The object breaks a crown and Ken‘s day goes sideways when he tries to return the cereal he was eating to the Whole Caboodle Mart. The store’s owner turns out to be much more than a micro-scale merchandising proprietor, and Ken finds himself in a universe where abstract agreements such as the value of money and the shelf-life of Twinkies no longer exist.
