Cordelia is a human girl raised by squirrels in Central Park and well-known among the park's other critters. When she gets an urgent message summoning her to the Central Park Zoo, Cordelia learns from the sea lions that a monster has been roaming the park grounds--something the size of a bear with glowing eyes!
