Two friends share three mushrooms... who will get the extra one?
"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 each come up with one argument after another for why they should have more: I found them! I cooked them. With my recipe! I like mushrooms more than you. I'm bigger. I'm still growing...
Until the fox comes around the corner and snatches a mushroom. That solved 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..."
Mary's review : This has to be the utlimate tale of how to divide 3 things between two people or in this case, creatures. The care taken by weasel in cooking the mushrooms, the wonderful illustrations and the memory of many such tussles with my sisters when we were children all made this book very appealing to me.
