View All Available Formats & Editions


Two capybaras are delivered to the Toronto High Park Zoo. When an opportunity to escape comes up, they take it! This sets off a frenzy across the city, with some Torontonians cheering the renegades on, and others plotting their downfall.

Follow the adventures of these giant rodents as they meet new animals and try new things. You'll meet Muck the movie-loving chipmunk, Ed the stealthy coyote and a trio of clever raccoons, all intent on protecting the capybaras. Together, the crew outsmart trackers and zoo workers and become good friends in the process.

You'll laugh and be amazed when you find out what two capybaras and a park full of animals can do with thirty-six days of freedom!
