What would a class be without a dunce? A bit like a curry without spice. And Ducoboo sure spices up his fellow pupils' days. Not one lesson goes by without flavour - with him, school is an endless string of break-times. Of course, there's always Leonie, the terribly gifted girl who doesn't put up with Ducoboo's messing and doesn't believe in sharing knowledge. Of course, there's also the teacher, whose index finger turns out to be more threatening than ever...No, school life isn't one long, smooth ride: for some, the school year is perhaps the most dangerous time of all!
