Kikko carries a pie to her grandma’s house, following the footsteps made in the snow by her father. “She struggled in the deep snow and fell. The pie box crushed. Kikko felt like crying. But her father was almost out of sight.” She picks up the crushed box and follows a figure in the distance approaching a strange house. 

“Curious, Kikko peered through the window. She watched as he took off his long coat and hat. But – he isn’t her father at all! Kikko had been following a great big bear!” Inside the house, Kikko finds a tea party of woodland animals who welcome her. They share their own food so she can replace her crushed pie to take to her grandmother.
