Alfie wants to participate in the best parts of being a kid, from his friend Antoinette's birthday party to the relay races at school. But his shyness keeps him from engaging. When Alfie wakes up with That Feeling on the morning of yet another big event-the underwater costume parade-his mom takes him to the aquarium. There, Alfie meets a starfish who shines so boldly Alfie feels small. But suddenly, a tiny clownfish swims up to Alfie for a quick hello and retreats again. Alfie begins to understand that there's a happy medium between hiding away and being the star, and that he needs to come out of hiding every once and awhile to make meaningful connections.
