A small boy in a weird, wild world!
Albie is a six-year-old boy whose imagination turns his surroundings into wild fantasy and who sees peculiar creatures everywhere. Why does no one else notice them? It's a mystery to Albie.
It's jut an ordinary night when . . . Albie wakes up to find his bed has been stolen by penguins. He dashes downstairs in hot pursuit but the penguins are nowhere to be seen. Instead, Albie finds two gnus in the loo dancing a tango, a herd of zebras asleep in the kitchen cupboards and some elephants in the living room, building a baked-bean-fuelled rocket from household furniture - which includes his bed!
But Albie's biggest worry is that his sister, Mary, has woken up and she will be furious to find that her goldfish bowl has also been stolen by the penguins and is about to be used as a space helmet. And Mary gets the biggest shock of all when she leans on the rocket lever by mistake and shoots off into the night sky.
