Marilou and her father are keeping Camelot, a camel, in their garden for a few days. Meanwhile Marilou's father is building a new enclosure for the camel at the zoo which will be like the desert.
After Marilou has taken her pet camel for a tour of her neighbourhood, they take him back to the zoo. Marilou sees that Camelot will be well protected in the new enclosure, but also very isolated. Together they all make changes to the fence so that everyone can pay a visit.
In this amusing story, Marilou and her friends share with each other all they know about camels, where they come from and what they need.
