A new student, Bunella, arrives at Little Critter’s school and everyone is curious about her. She’s different. She gives the teacher an apple, sits in the front, and receives special treatment from all the adults, especially the teacher, Miss Bunny. The students decide that Bunella must be the teacher’s pet. She gets to tell the other students what to do and what not to do when they’re on a field trip. There is a baseball game with the older kids that Little Critter’s class doesn’t ever beat. Miss Kitty tells them to remember to include Bunella. Bunella wins the game for Little Critter’s class! Suddenly everyone wants to be friends with her.
