Stu is a wuss. A weakling. A soft city kid. A chicken.

His cousins are tough. Daredevils. Farm kids who look like they sprinkle steroids on their Weet-Bix.

When Stu is packed off to the country for the summer, he has to face the dangers that lurk behind every tree: demonic lambs, yabby-infested tanks, raging creeks and, worst of all, his cousins.
