This is a good attempt to translate "The Lion, the Bear, and the Fox" into contemporary circumstances. Mary and Anna arrive home to find a note from Mom that there is one apple. They promptly fight over it. As they argue, their little brother comes in and starts eating the apple. To help identify him, the illustrator puts a fox on his t-shirt. Mary and Anna have, respectively, lion and bear on their t-shirts. The girls naturally complain about their little brother taking their apple. Mom, who has been listening, awards him the apple and chides them for arguing. They could have split the apple. "You two need to learn to share." A telling of the traditional story follows along with questions for reflection and discussion.
