Synopsis

There was once a Nanny Goat who wanted kids more than anything in the world, but she couldn't have any of her own. Adopting seems like the perfect solution, but the kid she adopts is different to the others - in fact, he's a tiger cub!

But the Nanny Goat doesn't care. When her mistrustful sisters kick her kid out of the herd, she resolutely stands by him, and her trust in him is repaid when he saves not just her but also his cousins from becoming a hungry tiger's dinner!
