For the past few months, Gooseberry Park has received little rain. Home to many creatures, the lack of rainfall is a concern to all that live there. Animals, especially the babies and elderly need water and a clever plan is hatched between the parks loyal visitors Kona the Labrador, his housemate Gwendolyn the crab, Murray the bat, Stumpy the squirrel and her 3 kids and a host of other friends to bring desperately needed water back to the park.
This adventurous story features humor and a cast of courageous animals that bond together in a time of need.
