Tibili laughs. All the time. Sometimes he even laughs in his sleep. But when his mother tells him he'll be going to school when classes start again, he stops laughing. Tibili doesn't want to go to school. He doesn't want to sit in a classroom. He doesn't think he needs to know how to read and write. He would rather read the sky or the red dust of the road. He would rather dream. Tibili questions all his friends: What can I do so I won't have to go to school? Crope the spider is the only one who has a solution: Find the Box of Knowledge. Tibili finds the box, only to learn that school isn't such a bad idea after all.
