Zapinette, a sharp-tongued and whimsical teenager of American, French and Italian descent, lives with her mother, a staunch ‘felinist’ who owns a beauty parlor in Paris, as well as with Firmin, the latter’s boyfriend.  The girl however feels much closer to her ‘Unky Berky’, in spite of the fact that he is “such a weirdo at times and can get on her bloomin’ nerves”.  Through Firmin, ‘the vermin’, she learns that her beloved uncle is a ‘homey setchual’.  They will travel together to Italy, Switzerland, New York and, finally, South Africa, experiencing a rollercoaster of extraordinary adventures.
