When Jerry falls asleep on the bus to school, he's incredibly hacked off to wake up and discover he's on another planet. The realisation that he's just been sold to a family of aliens by an exotic pet shop, does nothing to improve Jerry's mood. Harchi Jannan and his son, Chad, are thrilled with their unique new pet, but Rashila Jannan is so furious with her husband for buying it, she's ready to shed her tail tip. A situation made worse when her boss decides Jerry is the perfect subject for a high-stakes, top-secret, research programme. This brilliantly funny story follows Jerry's bizarre experiences as a pet, tangling with the family - and his surroundings - as he desperately tries to get home again.
