Little Raccoon has a question.

It is a question for his mother.

"When do you love me most of all?" he asks.

Of course, one question leads to another.

"Is it when I wake up?"

And another.

"Is it when I play in the trees?"

And another and another and another.

Little Raccoon has lots of questions.

How many answers does his mother have?

Just one.
