Trying to Fit In features Pete the Puzzle Piece’s difficult quest to make friends in a new town. As he travels, Pete is not accepted by anyone, until the Puzzletons attend the “Puzzle Peace Party” where everyone works together and Pete fits perfectly into a heart-shape puzzle art. Pete is finally accepted as part of the group.
