Pärt is a clever little lad. He lives in a lovely small town with his mum, dad, his older brother Joosep and his younger sister Leenu. Life is peaceful and happy, just sometimes things happen that Pärt is not entirely prepared for and therefore ends up in a pickle. Like when the girl next door, Kaisa, starts to taunt him that he doesn't know how to do a backflip. Or when his dad leaves him to stand in line at the store while he himself goes to fetch the yeast he has forgotten. Or when a plump plum in a stranger's yard just asks to be picked. Pärt tries hard to come up with the best solution for everything.
