One snowy night Percy the park-keeper is visited by all the animals from the park. It’s cold and they want some shelter for the night. Things get a little crowded, but in the end everyone manages to find a cozy little nook to sleep in.

A funny, repetitive story as Percy repeatedly answers the door to find another shivering critter on his front step. The crowded bed is very funny, as is the reaction of the animals when mole unexpectedly digs his way in. Everyone ends up cozy and sleeping, in cupboards, pockets, drawers and slippers, for a satisfying ending.
