A beautiful, magical story of a boy/dog's tale of survival in the Australian bush. There are good guys and bad guys in both human and animal form. And there's love in the air too. After the ultimate humiliation at the hands of the school bully, our hero Ben Wilkinson takes his frustration out on a stray dog just as lightning strikes. He wakes up in the body of the dog, and his adventure begins. He struggles to survive against the odds as he fights for his freedom and his life in rural Australia. His mother, herself a widow doing it tough, faces her own struggle as Ben's comatose body lies lifeless in hospital. She only has the doctor to lean on, and this turns out to be not such a bad thing. Ben uses his wits to get the better of wild dogs, snakes and zealous rangers, while making interesting animal friends - and a couple of human ones. He does OK, but seems destined to be trapped in his new form forever . . .
