This year in winter holidays everything goes wrong because Pigtail’s baby brother appears to the world and turns everything upside down. Pigtail’s parents are fully occupied with him and in order to look after Pigtail her Grandma arrives from the countryside. But she doesn’t know how to skate nor is any good at reading good-night-tales. Pigtail’s imaginary friend, Mr. Sleeplessness, also believes that the holidays are close to be spoiled. The two come up with a plan how to save the holidays.
Jacob spends summer in the city’s suburbs with his cousin, the smarty-boots Mimmi, and become friends with Boss, the leader of a horde of talking homeless dogs. Jacob and Mimmi together with the dogs try to rescue the place from the rich Lord Pie who has plans to convert the romantic wooden-house-neighbourhood into an impersonal glass skyscraper area.
