Toby is a young boy who never goes anywhere without his parachute. It helps him get out of bed, climb off the stool in the bathroom, get out of the chair after breakfast. Then one day, his cat is stuck in a tree. Toby climbs up the tree and lowers his cat to the ground in his parachute. Suddenly, he is up in a very high tree house without his parachute. Slowly, he is able to make his way down to the ground, and as time goes by, he doesn't need his parachute as much as he used to.
