Nit Boy adaptation set to go on stage
LEWIS is a kid, and he has the worst case of nits in history. He has so many of them, his teachers and mum want to shave his head, but Lewis has had nits so long that he's kind of attached to them.
He sees them as his pets.
This is the story of Nit Boy.
Meanwhile, in the dense forest on Lewis's head, Ned, the first-ever jumping louse, has just been born. And the nits are poised to take over the town, the country, the world.
It's a David and Goliath battle as Lewis tries to hang on to his hair and his 'head mice' no matter what it takes.
