Napoleon eventually meets Pedro, a new arrival from Mexico, and quickly develops a strong friendship. They find adventures at a school dance, a dairy farmers’ fair, and a school election, which Pedro goes on to win after Napoleon gives a performance of freestyle, expressive dancing as his required talent portion of his campaign for school president.
