SynopsisBenny liked burgers. Benny LOVED burgers.
Burgers were the only food that Benny would eat.
'You'll turn into a burger one day,' his mum warned.
And one day, Benny did.
And that is just the start of a madcap chase in which the hapless Benny is pursued across the countryside by a mob of hungry dogs, boys and angry cows.
An hilarious cautionary tale with a twist from a winning author and artist team.
