The lure of an unexpected and brightly wrapped package is almost universal, and Shorty the shortysaurus is certainly not immune to curiosity. There’s just one problem: the package is not for him! It’s addressed to his quail friend Clem. Shorty imagines what might be in such a fun-looking box, all the while trying his utmost to resist opening it. Unfortunately, he eventually gives in to temptation, opens the box, and must then apologize and explain his mistake to Clem. But as it turns out, Clem reveals a delightful secret that makes everything better: the package is actually a birthday gift for Shorty!
