Percy, the park keeper, always feeds the animals in the part where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy discovers that his little friends need more than food and he must find a way to help them.

The picture on the front of the book is of a very wintry scene. There are lots of big fluffy snowflakes falling and it looks very cold. The snow has settled on the trees and covered them in white icing like on a cake. The picture shows some animals on steps leading up to a wooden door which is very slightly open. On the very top step nearest the door is a badger with his arms crossed in front of him. Have you ever done that when you were cold? If you give yourself a hug it helps to warm you up. The badger's looking up at the open door and it seems as if he's asking someone if he and his friends can come in.
