Pluk and his tow truck

On a beautiful day, a small red tow truck enters a gate that leads to the ‘Petteflet’. Behind the wheel, an eight-year-old boy, Pluk, who’s looking for a place to live. He just started pitching his tent in the ‘Torteltuin’ (park), when Dollie the dove informs him about an empty room, all the way on top of the roof of the Petteflet. Pluk is not sure whether it’s allowed to move into that room, but Dollie assures him that it is, because the room’s not being used anyway. 

In the Petteflet, Pluk meets a lot of his future human friends, such as ‘Aagje’, the ‘Stampertjes’, ‘Mr. Pen’, but also future animal friends, like ‘Zaza’, ‘Squirrel Duizeltje’, ‘Dollie’ and ‘Shy Rabbit’. When one day Pluk finds out that they want to destroy the Torteltuin, he decides to do everything in his power to save the park, being accompanied by all his friends. But will he manage…?
