The townspeople are faced with a dilemma when a spaceship lands in their town. Scared and apprehensive, they voice many hypotheses about why their otherworldly visitors have come and what they’re after. However, only young Stephen guesses correctly—they want marshmallows! (Who wouldn’t?) The aliens have come to earth with gallons of hot chocolate to share. With the addition of Stephen’s marshmallows, the hot chocolate becomes an extra special treat for the townspeople and the aliens to enjoy together, and no one is scared anymore!
