A little man has a big, scary problem. This little man is unsure of what to do, where to go, and whether or not he is strong enough. But he has friends. There is a smart one, a brave one, and a doughy coward that refuses to stay home even though he has never been good for anything. At the very end, it turns out that the poor, pudgy craven is the one that sticks it out the longest and does the most good.
