Hiriko zooak ekitaldi berezia antolatu du. Gaur, bisitariek euren etxe-animaliak eraman ditzakete zoora Jakina, hiritar guztiek ondo pasatu nahi dute bertan. Dylanek eta Isabellak, poliglota neba-arreba txikiek, aukera paregabea dela uste dute Kikirentzat, Dylanen oilo etxe-animaliarentzat. Kikik animaliak diren lagunak egin ahal dituelako. Haatik, egoera korapilatu egiten da Kiki une batez zaindu ez dutenean. Istorio dibertigarri eta xelebre honetan, umeek originaltasunez pentsatzea eta arazo zailak konpontzeko irudimena eta sormena garrantzitsuak direla ikasiko dute.
