Two for Me, One for You

Bear finds three tasty mushrooms on her way home through the woods. Her friend Weasel cooks them up in the frying pan. But the friends have a problem: how to share three between two?

Bear and Weasel come up with one argument after another for why they should have more. Bear needs more because she’s big; Weasel needs more because he’s small and needs to grow. Weasel cooked them, but with Bear’s recipe …

Until the fox comes around the corner and snatches a mushroom. That solves the problem. They eat the two mushrooms and it’s time for dessert. Here comes Weasel with the scrumptious wild strawberries, three of them to share…
