Mr. Bump is very excited this morning because he is going on a trip. But he is so unlucky that he manages to make himself late, on account of a series of unexpected incidents. It looks as though he will miss is train, so he decides to hitchhike and is picked up by Mr. Forgetful who, instead of taking him into the station, drives him to the airport. He then finds himself in the plane’s baggage hold. But all ends well because he lands on a tropical island and has a really wonderful holiday!
