Tip Tipper is a second grader with lots of smarts and sillies to share. When he tries to join his friends at the park, instead of making them laugh, he scares them; when a classmate falls, he laughs. Tip just can’t seem to figure out the right time to be silly. In an effort to impress his peers at the school spelling bee, Tip embarrasses himself. With the help of King Nobble Ook, the ruler of the village, Tip must learn the appropriate time to have fun and the right way to make friends.
