When Sally May comes home from the hospital with a new baby girl, it causes a stir on the ranch. Hank thinks it’s a Giant Baldheaded Lizard. Alfred is jealous of the new baby and runs away from home, into the Dark Unchanted Forest. He is followed by Sinister, a ferocious bobcat, and Hank must go into the forest and save the boy. On the way, he encounters a weird little owl, Madame Moonshine, and a couple of rowdy coyotes, Rip and Snort. At last Hank finds Alfred, sitting in a shallow cave with Wallace and Junior, the buzzards.
