Meet Penelope, a young lady with a very special power... she can talk to animals. But as any hero knows, with great power comes great responsibility and now Penelope's gift has taken her, along with her orphan friend Kyle and bird Ruby, all the way to England where the trio have only 3762 hours to save the world from the evil MP Thomas Stone.

In an epic battle of brain and brawn - that takes in Shakespeare, stately homes, dastardly schemes and martial arts trained fighting twins - will Penelope and Kyle's ingenuity, along the help of their animal friends be enough to save the day?
