Slithers the snake has had enough. Enough of Animal City, and enough of being an animal altogether. What he wants is peace and solitude, and there’s only one way he’s going to get it. By transforming himself into a Human Being. Slithers isn’t alone. Mane the lion’s cub, Trunkie the elephant, and Fury the ferocious border collie, all want to be transformed into humans too, but it isn’t as simple as that.
First the four must travel through the dangerous Animal World and get to the Human World, but if there’s one thing natives of the Animal World don’t like – it’s animals that want to transform into Human Beings. Conniving pigs, fearsome wolves, zealous crocodiles, mad apes, and one very sly bear, are just some of the dangers that await, and to succeed the four travellers must use all their wits, courage, and willpower, and ultimately decide; is the freedom they crave found in the Human World, or is it found within themselves?
