Emptying his bowl of porridge seems like an impossible task to Timmo. At first, it’s as big as a pond; then, it looks like a lake, and the longer he stares, the more it resembles an endless sea. Luckily, Timmo’s big brother comes to the rescue, calling on wild animals to help. Big beasts like a bear and a wolf get big mouthfuls, while somewhat smaller ones like a hare and a hedgehog get littler bites. At long last, there’s only enough porridge left for itsy-bitsy creatures. Fantasy animals get to lick up the final scraps: a hedgehawk, a frox, and a lizabbit. The sea, lake, and even pond of porridge have vanished, and all that remains is an empty bowl.
