Oliver is finding the big city a lonely and scary place but when he finds a little lost dog he makes his first friend in the city.
The trouble is, he knows that somewhere out there someone is missing the little dog just as much as he is loving having him, So, with a heavy heart, Oliver sets about doing the right thing.
Albert & Sidney, the boy & his pet monster.
Albert enters Sidney in a ‘Best Pet Monster Competition’. He is very optimistic, he thinks Sidney is a most excellent monster. However, the judges have a different idea about what makes a good monster. Sidney doesn’t quite cut it.
He’s not got any warts, he doesn’t have any parasites (just a couple of holiday makers, stopping by), he can’t fly and his farts just don’t smell that bad.
Albert finds this all very embarrassing. Until he realises that Sidney has many talents, they’re just not very monster like.
