What's so great about being little when it means the big kids take your seat on the bus, eat all of the cupcakes, and won't let you play football? Little Critter(R) wants to grow up--and quickly. So he builds a growing machine but doesn't grow an inch. What's a critter to do? Just when things seem hopeless, Little Critter's grandpa shows him that being big doesn't always mean being the best.
