When Pig kindly gives a lift to Mole and his very large box he can’t resist asking him, “What’s in the box?” “NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!” retorts Mole rudely, and Pig chucks his ungrateful passenger out of the car and goes home. But Pig and his friends, Hippo, Girl and Mouse, are so curious about the mysterious box they sneak back to find out what could be inside. Each animal dreams of the wonderful things that could be in the box, but it is only when Mole tricks them into goinginto the box and locks them in, that they find out! And now it is Mole who feels tricked and left out. The story ends with apologies all round for rude behaviour and the friends all share the fun of playing together, whether inside or outside the box!
