Shooting Ducobu in the cave


The bell rings and it's the liberation for the student Ducobu.
Finally the vacations, far from Latouche and his diabolical dictations !!!
Comic books, Mickey Club, ice cream galore...
Ducobu has hardly time to rejoice when his father announces a completely different program.

They leave with Gratin's family. With Léonie and her mother, it's more like waking up at dawn, museums and revisions.
And to crown it all... Ducobu runs into Latouche and Mademoiselle Rateau who have also come on vacation to the campsite.
The nightmare !!!

Fortunately, chance puts a mysterious map on his path. Thanks to his ingenuity, Ducobu deciphers the enigma and sets out to find a lost pirate treasure.
The king of cheating becomes the king of adventure and the real vacations can begin!...
