Cyril and Bruce couldn’t be more different. Cyril has saved no food for the winter while Bruce has squirrelled away a mountain of food. They both spy the last pine cone in the forest thinking it is just what they need before winter begins. But as they reach for this cone, it comes loose from the tree and they chase it all over the forest. Only to watch in dismay as a bird swoops down and “their cone disappeared up, up… UP… and AWAY!… But all hope was gone. It was simply no use.” As the bird flies away with their food, they realise how foolish and greedy they were and laugh instead of squabbling.
