When a new kid joins his class, Woodrow agrees with his classmates, Toulouse is really weird. He's short, dresses in a suit like a grandpa, has huge eyes and barely says a word. But Woodrow isn't exactly Mr. Popularity himself. The frequent target of the class bully, he thinks that maybe all Toulouse needs is a chance.

But when the teasing switches back to Woodrow, he learns that Toulouse is also a good friend.
