Poby is always a beat slower than everyone else. Harry feels like he’s losing out on many things because of Poby’s slow nature. Poby wants to cheer Harry up by going really fast and winning the sled race, but they end up having an accident instead. Harry realizes that hoping for Poby to move quicker is asking for too much, and so he tells Poby to just be his usual slow self. However, Harry’s still unhappy. That afternoon, the friends decide to go to the mountain to see the sun setting over the ocean. Once again, Poby takes a long time getting ready, so he and Harry get a late start.
