The Squirrels aren’t sure they want to go slow. Going slow gives them the opportunity to see more, hear more and feel more. They realise going slow is magical as Tag paints, Roly and Happy feed the birds, Betty waters a flower and Duggee feeds an apple to a unicorn while the birds sing and a rainbow appears overhead. Norrie lies back to watch the clouds. Gloria and pig jog past and the mice race by in their car.

Then they spot tortoise, they think he’s going slow but actually he’s in a hurry, his wife is having babies at the hospital. Duggee helps race tortoise to the hospital in his fire engine, speed boat, train, tandem bike and dragon boat. They complete the final mile with the Squirrels and tortoise on a racehorse and Duggee on the unicorn. By the time they arrive at the hospital tortoise is flustered and the nurse will not let him in until he is calm. The Squirrels help him to go slow and he witnesses his babies hatching.
