Jamie is worried about being rather a wimp. His hero is the pirate, Brave Bill, and he tries to magic himself into Brave Bill's world. The magic goes wrong resulting in Brave Bill coming into Jamie's world instead. Jamie takes his new friend to school to show him off and discovers that he isn't really brave after all, in fact he's a bully. Jamie stands up to him - and finds out that there are many different forms of bravery and that he has more to be proud of in himself than he ever realised.
