A shooting star flashes over the town of Kilfursa and Johnny Coffin makes a wish. That's when the trouble starts. Strange lights follow the school bus, hedgehogs throw themselves at the traffic and all the town dogs go missing. Enya's pet crocodile has also disappeared and Enya wants it back, NOW.
Their teacher, Mr McCluskey, becomes totally unhinged. And the homework he's setting in class becomes weirder and weirder. Is it any wonder that Johnny and his mates are school-dazed?
And there's definitely something out there.
