My name is Margalo, I come from fields once tall with wheat , from pastures deep in fern and thistle
I bet I'm going to be sick at my stomach before I get out of this.
Don't look down!
The Little family the go and adopt a bird named Margalo. Stuart and Margalo then go on and form a strong friendship.
Well, the old thing.
What had I better do.
Stuart wonders out into New York but has to hide from the dogs. He hides in a trash can and unfortunately gets picked up by the trash truck and gets sent onto a ship that is going to dump the trash into the ocean.
Margalo then goes and saves Stuart from bring almost dumped into the ocean.
A pigeon overhears Snowbell and Angora on how they plan on eating Margalo, and the pigeon writes a note to Margalo to warn her. Margalo then flies north
Stuart then sets off on an adventure in a toy car Dr.Carey had built him to find Margalo. He stops in a small town called Ames Crossing and then meets a girl his own size, Harriet Ames. Stuart invites her on a date by the lake but his plans are ruined.
I assure you I had everything beautifully arranged- everything. And now look!
After Stuart ventures out from Ames Crossing, Stuart hasn't found Margalo yet but he is determined and hopeful and continues on with his adventure.
