  • A.P.E. Spring-Russell Esquire, known since childhood as 'Ape'. has a huge stately home, but no-one to share it with. His children have grown up and gone out into the world and his wife (a very bossy lady who hated animals) moved out soon afterwards.
  • Now, for the first time, Ape can do exactly what he wants, and one thing he definitely wants is to have lots of animals around him. He begins with just a few hens, house in splendid style in the drawing-room. But Ape doesn't stop at hens. Oh no! He has plenty of room for more.....
