Who wouldn't want an otter for a friend? Certainly not Debbie who lives in a cottage near Bramble Wood. One day she is spied by Fliptail and his woodland friends and Fliptail takes her ball while Debbie is reading. That night, Fliptail decides to return the ball and sneaks into the house through the cat flap. Snowy the cat isn't so enamoured of the new arrival and chases him right out of the house and back to the woods. Snowy and Fliptail eventually become friends when Fliptail saves one of her kittens from the river and Fliptail eventually gets over his shyness with humans and becomes something of a family pet, travelling with Debbie and her parents on trips to town and to the seaside as well as sharing their adventures and activities around the house.
