Ever since Mr Bunion had retired from work, his days seemed empty and dull. Then one day he decided to clear out the clutter in his attic. There he found a box of old toys on top of which lay his tattered old school cap. And when he put on his cap, he began to feel peculiar, very peculiar indeed -- because he had turned into a little boy... In this brilliantly inventive fantasy, Mr Bunion rediscovers the joys of roller-skating, "takes off" with his kite and, when he finally comes down to land, finds a way to start feeling useful again and stop worrying about the "good old days."
