Poor Arnold. I'm glad there's a solution to his loneliness next door. But I tell you what, when mine were little & expressed boredom or loneliness, first we did chores *together* and then we played or read *together.* ( )

A little boy keeps bringing different animals home that he wants to take care of, and his mom says no to him. His imagination goes so crazy that eventually he brings home his neighbor.

A little boy begs his mom to let him keep different stray animals he finds or imagines, but she keeps turning him down, until he brings home a neighbor boy. The little boy seems like the typical child who gets lonely and wants to bring in every stray creature he finds available to him.
