The Animals' Christmas Tree
By Andy Beck and Brian Fisher
When the animals of Winter Wood awaken to find that their favourite pine tree is missing from the forest, they join together and mount a grand search. Having no luck in the sky, the treetops, the briar, or the brook, Carinal, Bear, Squirrel, and Deer eventually discover their precious pine displayed in the town square of nearby Merryville, just as the annual tree lighting celebration begins. They watch in wonder as the festive villagers decorate the tree, making it more beautiful than ever. The Mayor declares that he will plant a new tree in Winter Wood, and the animals vow to love and nurture the young sapling in order to give it back to the Merryvillians next Christmas!
