Standing up to a bully can change your life. Small, downtrodden Malcolm finally explodes, and stands up to his bullying stepbrother - with a frying pan. That moment drastically changes his life. Exiled by his stepfather to the wilds of Scotland, away from his mother and little sister, into the care of his elderly Aunt Mary and a huge Rambo lookalike, he meets a fresh type of bully and faces humiliation and shocking dangers for himself and his beloved dog Bullet. He tries to control his urge to react with violence, to stop being a victim, to develop a new outlook on life. So that when the gorgeously handsome Gerald reappears, gloating, Malcolm can maybe - just maybe - sort him out. Nothing goes smoothly, of course. But in the fresh clash of personalities, with the help of his new friends and family, Wee Malkie faces his problems with determination and humour - and the result surprises even himself.
