The two friends from Me and You and Without You have decided to put on a play. While Piggy and Bunny encourage each other’s inner stars, they discover that the same feeling can be expressed in very different ways. This gently funny story sets the stage for preschoolers learning how to play together after years of being stars of their own show.
Best friends Piggy and Bunny, previously seen in Me and You and Without You, attempt to put on a play in their third outing, but their differing personalities and interests threaten to derail the production. Initially, Bunny hides behind their clothesline curtain, claiming to be shy. "So? I'M shy, too!" bellows Piggy, as a tiny frog looks on dubiously. The conversation moves onto the different ways each friend expresses fear and eagerness, and a fight about the subject of the play (pirates vs. singing flowers) is sweetly resolved with apologies and compromise.
