Everyone in the forest is preparing for the New Year: they decorate the Christmas tree, decorate houses, wrap gifts and bake pies. Only the badger Grumpy turns up his nose from all this festive fuss. He does not need any gifts, or congratulations, or guests, or the New Year itself. He is fine alone, but he was going to sleep through the whole winter.
The badger was almost asleep when a frightened hare banged on the door. There’s been trouble! The mole has climbed to the very top of a tall spruce, but cannot come down! Grumbling’s help is urgently needed — after all, he is so tall, he can easily remove the mole from the Christmas tree. Will the badger come to the rescue of a neighbor? This is a touching story that even the most gloomy grumbler can have a big and kind heart.
