Morrie doesn't like children and Mrs. Aster doesn't like lizards. Or so they think. Morrie is a classroom pet who feels pestered by the students and looks forward to peace and quiet. That is, until the kids go on summer break. Morrie feels lonely before Mrs. Aster shows up. At first, she's fearful of the lizard, but she develops an affection for him when she learns they have something in common.
