A celebration of books, teamwork, and the joy of a gift for someone you love.
A tiny bird has found the most beautiful red strawberry to give her grandmother, but PLOP! it falls into the river. Not even the help of all of the bird's friends can get it back before a hungry crocodile snatches it up. The friends put their heads together and come up with the perfect idea of a new gift for Grandma: They'll create a book about their adventure with the strawberry! Grandma loves the story, of course, and is proud of her little author.
