This story features a little mouse named Newberry who is celebrating his second birthday. Although Newberry's friends and family are excited about the spectacular birthday event they have planned, the little mouse prefers things that are small, quiet and slow. Luckily, one of the Junkyard friends notices this and creates something special that matches Newberry's speed.
