The Boy Who Turned Yellow

Country: UK

Genre: Family Adventure, Fantasy



John loses his pet mouse whilst on a school trip to the Tower of London. Later, whilst travelling on the London Underground, the train and everyone in it, including John, suddenly turns a vivid yellow. John's doctor declares that the condition is harmless and should soon wear off, but that evening John hears noises from his television set and meets the eccentric yellow-coloured Nick (short for Electronic). The pair return to the Tower of London in an attempt to find John's mouse, but they are menaced by Yeoman Warders and John is threatened with execution. Will John ever be able to return home with his beloved mouse?
