Purdy, Barker and the Big Adventure

Maukka, Väykkä ja suuri seikkailu

Purdy is bored with the daily grind and Barker’s stability. Purdy wants some excitement from life!

”I want a real adventure. The kind that starts from something teeny, from some event you barely notice but leads to one that’s a little bigger, which
in turn leads to a strange coincidence that swells, unravels and in the end explodes into an adventure,” Purdy explained.

Purdy wants an adventure. But all Barker wants is a moment of peace so he can concentrate on building his miniature model of the village. And so the
dog agrees to a fateful deal. Because Purdy promises that if Barker will dig a teeny tiny hole in the driveway, he will leave his friend in peace.
How can such a huge adventure grow from such a tiny hole? You’ll find out with Purdy, Barker and the Big Adventure, where the friends meet Bear
Growler, go on a dragon hunt and save a maiden in distress. Just like you’re supposed to during big adventures.

And at the end of the story, of course there’s a treasure. The biggest, most beautiful one of all.
