Edgar the rat doesn't like company. So when he notices a worm is following him everywhere he goes, Edgar does everything in his power to get rid of his unwelcome companion. But the worm just won't go away! Edgar wants the other animals to solve his problem, but eventually he realises he might have been part of the problem all along.
