Roberto the insect architect: Roberto the termite travels to the big city to follow his dream of becoming a sucessful architect. Norman the doorman: Norman, the guard of the art museum, is surprised when his sculpture wins first prize in a contest. The mysterious tadpole: Lewis's birthday gift appears to be a tadpole, but it turns out to be much, much more.
