Simon Doolan has a nickname – Chook, which is another name for chicken. He is scared of everything. When his teacher hands out notices about an upcoming ‘Bring a pet to school day’, Chook knows he’ll bring his pet goldfish Bruce. But his best friend Joe doesn’t have any pets and Chook is determined to help him find one. They have no luck at a pet store or the animal shelter. Pet day arrives and Joe still has no pet in class. But a surprise is in store for both Chook and Joe.
