to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting. --Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)

So she takes matters into her own hands and storms off into the forest to find herself a new pet. In the forest Lulu encounters a number of animals; a snake, a tiger, a bear, all of whom don't particularly impress her. And then she finds him...a beautiful, long-necked, gentle, graceful brontosaurus. And he completely agrees with Lulu that having a pet would be a wonderful thing, indeed!
