Boris the wathog lives in an old bus with his parents in the town of Hogg Bay. Years ago this very bus and Boris' parents traveled about seeing the world. Today it just sits in the yard going nowhere.
Boris dreams of going on a real adventure. He even puts up a map on his wall and uses red pins to show where he wants to go- everywhere - and green pins to show where he's been - Hogg Bay.
HIs parents catch on to his wildest dreams and on one amazing day, the bus starts up and moves. At last, Boris finds himself with an adventure all his own.
