Mrs Bea knew Kip was special but when he finds his crow, their city neighbours don't think so. What can they do? Kip tries to keep everyone happy by crowing at different times of the day but sadly no one is happy. When Kip is moved away from the city to live on a farm, the neighbours realise it wasn't Kips crowing that made their lives difficult.
