Who is the new boy in the neighborhood? Where's he from? What's he like?

What's a boy to do when he moves to a new neighborhood and doesn't know a soul? Who will he play with? There's not a kid in sight! Where will he find the other kids?

As Neville wanders around the neighborhood, he does a lot of thinking. What can he do to find a friend? Suddenly, he has a hysterical idea! He stops and hollers at the top of his lungs ... NNNEEEEEEVVVVVVILLE!!!!! Again and again he yells!

Bet you won't guess what will happen!

You can sing about Neville to the tune of "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt":

His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out, people always shout,
Dah! Dah! Dah! Dah! Dah! Dah! Dah ...

Repeat. Each time, the verse gets quieter and the Dah! Dah! gets louder.

What a clever way to make friends!
