STUART'S CAPE - Stuart and his flaky family have just moved to town, and there’s plenty to worry about. Stuart is very good at worrying, but not so good at waiting. Impatient for an adventure, he makes himself a cape from a hundred old ties and from then on, he has one preposterous adventure after another.

STUART GOES TO SCHOOL - A new town, a new school, no friends yet. Stuart has plenty to worry about. Luckily, he has a magical cape. Can he control the adventures his cape creates in order to impress his classmates, or will he become the laughing stock of the whole third grade?
