A year after their previous adventures Omri and his best friend Patrick revisit their miniature model friends in the shape of Little Bull, the Indian chief, and the cowboy 'Boo-Hoo' Boonue; but now they discover the added thrill of being able to transport themselves, physically, to another time and place, with potentially life-threatening results.
