Eric Walters' timeless series about the zoo next door is now available from Scholastic Canada!

When tornado-force winds force Sarah and Nicholas Fraser to seek shelter in a neighbour's barn, they discover that the retired circus trainer has some unusual farm animals: a cheetah, an ape, a python, and a tiger!

Fascinated by the exotic animals, Sarah and Nicholas help out with their training and care. But when a band of mischievous teens cut the chains to the tiger's cage and he escapes, they must help track him down before the story makes front-page news.

This classic series from bestselling author Eric Walters has been newly revised and redesigned.
