The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood. Outside Little Mouse’s house, a strawberry is growing. A red, ripe strawberry. Mmm! Mouse is just about to go and pick it. But wait – the narrator warns him – what about the Big Hungry Bear? The bear, we learn, just LOVES strawberries, and can smell them from miles away, especially when they have just been picked. Oh no! Little Mouse has JUST PICKED our strawberry! Now, how can we keep it safe from that Big Hungry Bear? Mouse frantically tries hiding it, locking it up and guarding it, even dressing it up in a disguise… but it turns out that there’s really only one method to save a red, ripe strawberry from the Big Hungry Bear (Hint: that method is delicious).
