What Are Friends For?

Jefferson the big brown bear and Figgy Twosocks the little red fox are friends. They play together in the sunny green woods, they share the sky and the hills and the trees and they help each other. They know that that’s what friends are for. But when Figgy plays a trick on Jefferson Bear he becomes upset and cross. Figgy didn’t mean to upset her friend, she’d only been playing and now she worries that she may have lost her friend forever.
