Malcolm doesn’t like animals. Which is a problem because his family
love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full
of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his
birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year 6 school
trip, which Malcolm never thought his parents would pay for. And
yet there he is, on the bus, heading to… … oh no. The farm. Over
the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals.
More, in many ways, than he would like. He learns what it’s really
like to be an animal. A whole series of animals, in fact… It does
make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat
differently. But will he end up the same as he was before? Because
sometimes the hardest thing to become is… yourself.
