The reader tries to persuade a mouse to share the red, ripe strawberry it has just picked. The mouse panics and hides, disguises and locks the strawberry away only, for the reader to explain that there is only one way to stop the big, hungry bear from eating it. “Cut it in two… Share half with me… And we’ll both eat it all up. YUM!…Now, that’s one red, ripe strawberry the big, hungry Bear will never get!”
