MALCOLM DOESN’T LIKE ANIMALS Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes.

And yet there he is, on the bus, heading to… … oh no. A farm. Over the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals. More, in many ways, than he would like.
