Zane and his animal comrades have foiled Dr. Gristle's terrible plots twice; he can't talk to animals, and he can't get at the heart of what makes them wild. Zane can talk to them. He can understand them. He almost is one. Almost. Zane keeps getting in Dr. Gristle's way though, and he's being sent as far out of the way as Gristle can get him. In fact, he's being sent right into the middle of a new plot of the bad doctor's, and in his new, utterly foreign surroundings, he's entirely too human. Just what has Gristle done to make these new animals so angry? Can't they see that Zane is their Friend? In order to get home, Zane must figure out a way to stop Gristle's new plan and make some new friends before he becomes animal feed — or worse. It's time to defeat the evil Dr. Gristle once and for all! In the not-too-distant future, a boy must be all animals' best friend, in a final laugh-out-loud adventure sure to please middle-grade readers with all types of pets.
