The Magic Finger tells of an unnamed 8-year-old girl who tells the story of her neighbours, the Gregg family. The Gregg family like to hunt. The girl tried to talk them out of it, but they either laugh at her, or they ignore her completely. But what they don’t know is that the girl has a magic finger that activates whenever she gets angry.

After a terrible mishap with her teacher, the girl swore to never use her powers again. However, she has finally had enough of the Greggs’ mocking and gives in to temptation and uses it again to stop them from hunting by turning them all into ducks! Will she ever manage to persuade the Gregg family to change their ways?

The Enormous Crocodile is a horridly beastly creature who loves to guzzle up little boys and girls and everyone in the jungle. By disguising himself in several situations, hoping to find some tasty children to eat, his plans are always foiled. Luckily for the children, all of the other animals in the jungle join forces to help stop The Enormous Crocodile from eating all the innocent children.

Mr Hoppy is a very shy man. He lives alone in his apartment and tends to his plants on his balcony. But he has a big secret: he is secretly in love with his downstairs neighbour, Mrs Silver, who is devoted to her tortoise, Alfie. Alfie is too small and Mrs Silver desperately wished he would grow more. Mr Hoppy soon comes up with a genius plan to help Alfie and win the heart of Mrs Silver but will it work?

Mr and Mrs Twit are not nice people. They like to play nasty practical jokes on each other out of hatred. The Twits keep a family of pet monkeys, called the Muggle-Wumps, in an attempt to create the first upside-down monkey circus by making them stand on their heads for hours on end. The monkeys come up with a brilliant plan to glue the furniture to the ceiling to make the Twits think that they are upside down instead. But will their plan work to teach the terrible Twits a lesson?

When the animals get asked to clean all 677 windows of the Hamshire House, they spot a burglar attempting to steal the Duchess’ Jewels. Can they manage to stop him in time?
