Fidgety Bram is a little boy who just cannot sit still. Which becomes a problem when he starts school.
Fidgety Bram thinks a lot about the world around him. He is looking forward to entering the first grade but unfortunately he ends up in the class of the strict Mr. Fish. The old-fashioned teacher doesn’t care about Bram’s internal, mobile, unfocussed world and does whatever it takes to make him do things right.
Bram’s parents must subsequently struggle with the extent to which their son must adapt without becoming miserable.
