The Box Boys aren't brothers, but they were born on the same day in the same year.and they have the same surname! And when they get together, John and Scott Box always find adventure of a magical kind . . .
The fair has come to town and John and Scott can't wait to go. Dodgems, coconut shys, helter-skelters - and best of all the animal merry-go-round - with its brilliant colours and many different animals to ride. John chooses an elephant and Scott a giraffe, and as soon as the ride begins, they know they're in for another adventure. Faster and faster they go until suddenly they're no longer on the merry-go round, but deep in the jungle where the animals are gathering. The boys find themselves caught up in a jungle stampede - the ride of a lifetime - but will they make it safely back home?
