The story of a little boy in the country with just Mum and the cat for company and feeling rather dull. But the pictures tell a very different story - Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty and lots of storybook characters, and the boy still thinks it's been a dull day.

All around the little boy exciting things are happening - but at the end of the day, the little boy yawns and tells his father, "Nothing much happened round here today"!
