Louis imagines himself becoming a grown-up with a moustache that sprouts almost overnight, and tries to turn the idea into reality through various means. But when he turns up at school with a moustache firmly in place, it horrifies just about everyone who sees him. Just how much trouble can a moustache bring a little boy, and how does he get out of it?
