A remarkable find on the beach turns out to contain a very special pet – Koi-Koi!
One day the family makes a remarkable find on the beach. An egg! It is big and yellow and extremely beautiful. The egg gets to go home with them and Mummy thinks it looks really nice on the window sill, where it matches the curtains.
But one morning the egg is broken! There are big pieces of shell on the floor and under the settee there is a little tail sticking out … there was something in the egg after all!
The little figure, which they call Koi-Koi, is a cute pet that grows so much it creaks but in the end the house begins to seem rather cramped.
But what kind of creature is Koi-Koi? And how big can it get? Not even the scientists know!
