Alfie’s nursery school is right next door to the Big School where the big boys go. Alfie and Bernard wish they could be friends with the most popular big boy, Ian Barger, but Ian never takes any notice of the little kids.
One Saturday morning, Mum takes Alfie and Annie Rose to a Plant Pot Sale where Alfie spots Ian Barger screaming and yelling, “I want my mummy!” Ian grabs Alfie’s hand and holds onto him very tightly until his mum returns. Alfie realizes that big boys don’t always act so big after all!
