Illustrated by the award-winning Gérard DuBois, this exciting role-playing game between two unruly children full of life ventures to the limit of our imagination... When two mischievous friends are told to go outside to play, the backyard becomes their terrain for a frantic and thrilling role-playing game. From becoming King and Queen of the Kingdom of Pumpkins, to traveling to Mars, their vivid imaginations give them magical powers and take them on a wild ride where they will have to fight their enemies mercilessly. It's only when they are abruptly brought back to reality that they will find themselve truly in danger!
