'Do you think anything on earth can be done without trouble?' No, nothing - and it's truer than anywhere else in Boonstock School in Mansuri where Kinlay Pem and the Moof are about to get expelled. It's not because they've done anything wrong. It's because their parents have been arrested in America - but not because they've done anything wrong either. Now Kinlay and Pem are banned from playing the finals of the All-Mansuri Inter-School Football tournament and face the torturements heaped upon them by the dreaded Mrs Burton. When their coach manages to sneak them out for the game a mysterious Lama tells Kinlay and Pem about the Land of the Thunder Dragon - a magical hilly land where two wicked brothers are on a destructive rampage. And not much later Kinlay, Pem and the Moof find themselves there! Now they must team up with a talking snow leopard, a dotty goatelope and an injured bunny to convince the Thunder Dragon to help them save the land and its people. Will Kinlay, Pem and the Moof manage to convince the sulking dragon, and halt the march of the wicked brothers' stupefied army? Will they ever be able to find their way back to school, and their parents? Enter John G. Shulman's web of adventure, deceit and the continuing tussle between good and evil.
