Caillou's Mommy and Rosie are going out for awhile and Caillou and Caillou's Daddy are going to make a present for Caillou's Mommy. The present is a bookshelf and they first thing they do is use sand paper to make wood flat. Next, They put the first layer of paint on in the basement, suddenly Caillou's Daddy says " Oh no" and puts the paint brush on his head Caillou does the same and asks what is wrong. Caillou's Daddy tells him he is covered in paint - Caillou says the same thing back - and also that he forgot to buy the second layer of paint so they have to take care of business. They ride the bikes to a paint store and Caillou picks out a dark blue. On the way home they get a hotdog with mustard for their lunch at the hot dog stand, splashed with yellow mustard and then paint the book case. It is done when Caillou's Mommy and Rosie come back and Caillou's Mommy loves the bookcase. Caillou has also made a book too.
- The book Caillou made is just a block of wood.
- A splash of mustard at the hot dog stand
