Little Bertram, he’s always wishing he had his very own fabulous animals—creatures you only hear about in stories or read about in books. And lucky for Bertram, they seem to appear right in front of him!
Last time we visited Bertram (in Bertram and His Funny Animals>), his funny animals were awfully busy causing mayhem for him and his mamma. These days he’s a little older, and he’s busy hunting for buried treasure with the help of a griffin, hatching a baby dinosaur from its egg, soaring over his town with a roc, and palling around with a miki-miki (an animal whose diet is entirely filled with candy). His old friends Ginny Banning and George Fish help him along the way, joining in the fun and trouble. His mamma is still as baffled by Bertram as ever. Baby Sam gets caught up in the chaos once again. And his daddy is there to save the day, when he gets back from business in Omaha, of course.
