Six-year-old George loves animals but he doesn’t have a pet of his own. Luckily, his grandpa is a vet, looking after animals all over the countryside. Today, George is going to help Grandpa Todd as he does his rounds, and he cannot wait! George knows that wherever Grandpa goes, adventure follows, and he is not wrong, as the pair race off to help a poorly swan.
