- A sad day dawned for Billy Bunter (though his sadness was not generally shared by others at Greyfriars) when Mr. Bunter decided that Bunter was wasting his time at the ancient school and had better be started on an office career. It was not quite so bad as it might have been however;Billy Bunter's job was to be assistant to the local manager of the Comet Copra Co. on the South Sea island of Lololo.
- Some of the boys of Greyfriars accompany Bunter ot Lololo and spend the summer holidays there. There they fall foul of Ezra Huck, the rascally white trader of Kamakama who takes revenge by landing them in the midst of the cannibals of Kut whose savage leader Mefoo is on the look out for juicy additions to the cooking pot.
- Bunter, however is not destined to provide a meal for the cannibals or even to start in his new job,
