In an attempt to escape the school bully Monty Grabbe, Ben hides under the school bins, unwittingly entering a tunnel into a fantasy realm. Thus he finds himself in the lands of King Coo, a bearded female ruler who takes Ben on raucous adventures and eventually helps him defeat Monty.
A hilarious romp of a story is bought to life by Bower's beautifully detailed black-and-white illustrations.
