The Answer

Yep, turnip. That’s what E.T. hollowed out and made into a vegetable spaceship in William Kotzwinkle’s sequel to the E.T. movie. Here’s the summary from the back of the book:

“In his wonderful new adventure, E.T. goes home to his beloved Green Planet, filled with strange and fascinating creatures. But he’s lonely. E.T. misses Elliott and the good days on Earth…living in a closet, drinking beer, and wearing a wig. Here is the story of how E.T. solves his problem…”

I’ve had the book forever – since I was a wee lad. And yes, turnip.
