Amid a riot of unbridled and highly entertaining chaos, there lies an unexpected and entirely unpredictable adventure for this cowboy with a difference. Will is thinking of hanging up his cowboy hat and joining the elf side of his family so that he can learn more magic. But, when his granny is kidnapped, he realises that fighting the rock demon must come first. The daring Sky Cowboys face great dangers – but luckily, their magic makes things a lot of fun too.
