Every year Saint Nicolas hands out presents to all good children. Three young pets, a ferret, a canary and a stick insect, decide that they too deserve gifts and set out therefore on an adventurous journey to bring their wish lists to Saint Nick. Overcoming many obstacles en route, including a busy road, a scary but sweet young puppy and a thieving rat, they learn an important lesson: the best present you can give and receive is friendship.
