Lovable, cheeky Bud loves eating junk food. Crisps, chocolate, sweets, cakes and doughnuts – he just can’t get enough of those tasty treats. He also has another very bad habit – dropping litter! ‘Don’t drop litter,’ Bud’s parents warn. ‘Stop dropping litter,’ Bud’s teacher Mr Tong nags. ‘Littering is bad,’ Bud’s classmates explain. However, Bud never, ever listens because he’s … a litter bug!
It seems that Bud will never change – until one Saturday afternoon when a visit to a very unusual sweet shop launches him on a strange adventure.
