All the students at Nutley School love peanut butter, especially Simon. For Simon, peanut butter is essential. But then new student, Grant comes to school. Grant is allergic to peanut butter and can't sit near anyone eating it. Should the principal forbid peanut butter in the cafeteria? What will the students of Nutley School do if they can't have peanut butter for lunch? Simon comes up with a clever idea. The school can have a peanut-free Cafe! It will be a fun place to eat and watch moves, where the only admission is a peanut-free lunch. The other students gladly give up their peanut-butter lunches to be in the new Cafe with Grant, but can Simon give up the food he loves the most?
