Boyface Antelope has been waiting his whole life to turn ten and be allowed to enter his parents’ stripemongering shop, Stripemongers, for those who don’t know, are people skilled in the arts of taking stripes off things and putting them on other things.
With these skills you can make boring animals more exciting or, should you like, you can put tartan onto badgers, or remove the stripes from zebras to make ponies (far more exotic).
On the morning of his tenth birthday Boyface parents fall ill, in an almost dream come true he is asked not just to go into the shop, but to run it! what could possibly go wrong?
Welcome to the world of James Campbells mind, where anything is possible. The first in this very funny series with accompanying illustrations by Mark Weighton.
