In this adventure, Mrs Meadows introduces Mrs Shell, a tortoise who has just settled in the area close to the Megas’ school. The Megas ask her to stay and play with them in the playground. Once there, Mrs Shell, who’s a little scatterbrained almost treads on a very grumpy ant. The ant gets very angry with her, and the tortoise thinks that the ant is as rude because he is small. The Megas try to get the two to become friends so they can all play together. In the end, the Megas come up with a game (of sorts), and which turn the the ant and the tortoise into great friends.
