In a dark house in the dark city of Schwartzgarten there’s something lurking in the shadows.

Conrad tells his parents that there’s a tiger living on top of his wardrobe (who eats champagne truffles, no less!) but they don’t believe him. When Conrad’s parents suddenly welcome a mysterious stranger, Mister Holgado, into their home, Conrad suspects he’s more of a threat than any tiger ever could be.
