Mr. Small has a shiny red auto. On nice days, Mr. Small takes his car out of the garage and goes for a drive. He can drive fast enough to pass a horse and buggy! He runs into trouble when it begins to rain and he gets a flat tire. But he is able to fix the tire, the sun comes out, and Mr. Small drives his little auto back into the garage.

Mr. Small is very proud of his shiny red auto. He oils it, pumps up the tires, adds water to the radiator, and heads out for a drive! Scattering chickens, outrunning dogs, and remaining eminently cheerful even when rain falls and he gets a flat tire, Mr. Small has a grand old time. At the end of the day, he washes and polishes his auto and garages it until the next time.
