Eric Walters' series about the zoo next door continues!
Mr. McCurdy and Vladimir are well on their way to installing the new animals on Mr. McCurdy's farm: Boo Boo the bear, Peanuts the elephant, Kushna the tiger, and Sarah's pet deer are joining the family of exotic creatures, and it's hard work moving them in.
But when a young boy sneaks into the big cats' barn, mayhem breaks loose. McCurdy's old rival, the community's mayor, has an excuse to question the security of the exotic animal farm - and soon they're threatened by an overzealous inspector. The local newspaper gets in on the action, and animal-rights protesters invade the farm. To make matters worse, Sarah and Nicholas's mother is dating the police chief! Whose side will she take in the fight for Tiger Town?
