When apples, worms and roots become unbearably boring, Badger sets off to find more exciting foodbut he can't quite catch the main ingredients. Badger keeps searching until in frustration he shouts: I'm so hungry I could eat a horse Unfortunately, a nearby horse doesn't think that is so funny.

Keiko Kasza, a master at surprise twists on the last page, includes clever panels to show what happens to the animals who escape Badger's grasp, allowing kids to be in on the satisfying way they unwittingly get back at their tormentor.
