Boo Boo attempts to reach out to her son Lionel on his turf, to play a game by his rules, and must share in a kind of imaginary landscape Lionel has established in order to do so. Boo Boo must show patience and understanding to do this. The story ends on a note of victory, with Lionel winning the race back to the house – a race only he could have cared about winning.
