The day primary school teacher Ms. Grayston gets bitten by an unusually patterned spider, is the day the world changes...

 

Soon afterwards, milk begins to be delivered to petrol stations and people mistakenly pour skimmed, 1%  and fat reduced into their engines. Television stations go off the air. Eleven own goals are scored in one football match.  Streets become abandoned. And what about the overly organized Ms. Grayston herself? She arrives late for work after collecting four traffic tickets, breaks the classroom’s TV set and puts on red felt marker instead of lipstick. Meanwhile, disorganized people everywhere have begun colour coding their socks.

 

What can be going on? Ben and his companions, the pretty new student Leela and his oldest friend Martin, with a little help from Ben’s father, are out to investigate and save the world, despite a few mishaps along the way!
