Twelve-year-old Duggie Bones might not be the most popular kid in school but he is magic.
When the mysterious Professor Mosotho sends Duggie, lessons on ancient African wisdom, along with magic spells to give him confidence, Duggie thinks he may have found the answers to some of his many problems, including how to tackle,'The Baddies', bullies, Brooke, Madison and Clint Baddley.
But is Mosotho really a professor and is it really voodoo magic he’s offering? As Duggie’s problems increase, he tries to work out whether Professor Mosotho and his ‘African Academy of Alternative Arts’ is real or somebody playing a horrible trick on him?
Will Duggie ever learn the truth and how will he cope with his rapidly escalating problems in the meanwhile?
