    Bear finds three tasty mushrooms on her way home through the woods. Her friend Weasel cooks them up in the frying pan. But the friends have a problem: how to share three between two?

    Until the fox comes around the corner and snatches a mushroom. That solved the problem. They eat the two mushrooms and it’s time for dessert. Here comes Weasel with the scrumptious wild strawberries, three of them to share…

    3. Kirkus Reviews

      Mühle’s storytelling has a fine sense of comic pacing, and his cartoons are simple but effective, uncluttered and full of white space, creating cozy domesticity in the forest.

    1. Publishers Weekly

      In colored pencil and wash, Mühle crafts homey forest scenes that are one of the book’s delights: tree branches serve as hooks, the kitchen bursts with pleasing jars, and Weasel sits in what appears to be a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair.
