Casper is a bright boy, who lives in a village full of idiots, making him a bit different! Everyone, except Casper, is very excited when famous magician, The Great Tiramisu, is coming to Corne-on-the-Kobb. Casper dislikes how the magician is so full of his own importance and decides to teach him a lesson, especially after he sees for himself how he bullies his animals. Unfortunately, this backfires, and The Great Tiramisu puts a curse on the village. Casper’s father is blamed and sentenced to death by pigeon.

It’s up to Casper and his best friend, Lamp Flannigan, a bit of an inventor, to find the magician, reverse the curse and save the day.

A riotous tale that proves all you really need in life is a buggy that runs on washing-up liquid and a couple of boys to crash it.
