Faster than a burp, Raz zaps across the galaxy to a weird world where humans, ninja horses and mutant chooks live in peaceful harmony. At least they all did … until Raz makes a deal with wacky King Reginald that could lead to galactic war!

Health Warning! Erasmus James & the Galactic ZAPP Machine is:
