Tom’s father is afraid of animals. Butterflies, snails, squirrels—they alarm him so much, he won’t even come out of the house. Tom decides to take drastic measures and heads to the pet shop. First he trains a polar bear and sneaks it into the house. Then he smuggles in a tiger, a squid, a tortoise, a snake, two peacocks, three hippos and a small flock offlamingos. His father doesn’t seem to notice at first but learns that his son’s creativity and courage can help him conquer his fears.
