Seeing his "friend" outside of his house, Emil takes refuge under his bed, hoping Havard will just go away. Instead, he doesn't. He breaks in, starts drinking Emil's book, and ends up hosting a bizarre party for Emil's friends. Dark and hilarious, the breezy style of The Pets belies its depth, and disguises a complexity that increases with each page.
