Oliver is a quiet little boy. He avoids going to places that might be too noisy or crowded like the playground, the pool, or even birthday parties. In fact, Oliver’s favorite thing to do is play by himself in his own quiet room.


But things start to change when Odile moves in next door. One day, Odile asks Oliver to go to the playground with her. Oliver really wants to play with Odile, but he is worried...


Will Oliver go with Odile to the playground, even though it might be very crowded and much too noisy?
