The Dangerous Pet follows the exploits of a boy who desperately wants the toy of his dreams but must learn about getting out of Debt the hard way.

The story begins when the boy strolls by a toy shop and sees the most incredible, big blue robot.  He just can’t stop dreaming about buying it, but doesn't have enough money!  Then, he notices a man in the park, feeding  coins, of all things, to a small, green furry blob!  After learning that the boy wants the robot, the man makes a deal with him –  if the boy promises to care for the green furry pet, called Debt, the man will give him all the money he needs to buy the robot!   For a short time, the boy becomes the envy of the neighborhood. But soon, the boy finds it difficult to feed his dangerous pet. As the coins in his bank run out, Debt gets restless, meaner, and much scarier until it breaks through its cage and....AAAAAAAARRRGH!
