He is joined by two children who live next door.

As the trio walk and talk, they realise they have become lost deep in the woods.

They stumble across a spooky cottage and the children enter to ask for directions.

When they fail to come out, Mr Bowns must decide whether to go in to rescue them.

However, because he is so lazy, Mr Bowns must do it with the least amount of effort.

The Astounding Adventures Of Mr Bowns: The Laziest Man In The World will be launched at a Play Wild event on Monday at 4.30pm on the Beach Lawns in Weston.

Families will need to find and solve six riddles to receive a clue.
