In the story The honey thief, bear cub Nana has a full-blown crisis of conscience after catching her best friend Jo secretly nibbling Grandad Bomm’s honey. While she knows that it is wrong, Jo is also her best bear friend, so she vows not to squeal on him. However, over the next few days her conscience plagues her so much that she goes and tells Grandad Bomm, who finds a neat solution to her problem … In the second story entitled Secrecy, Liliane the elf stumbles upon a ‘good’ secret: the dormouse together with a group of fireflies has secretly decorated the shore of the torrent, making it incredibly beautiful. But it asks Liliane not to give it away. A secret that will give joy to others? That gives Liliane an idea …
