What happens when you break the rules?
Landfill has lived his whole life as a scavenger, running with wooflings, swimming with turtles and feasting on whatever he can catch.
Old Babagoo has always looked after him – on one condition. Follow Babagoo’s rules. And the most important rule of all is NEVER go beyond the wall.
But Landfill longs to venture Outside. And some rules are made to be broken.
