Story Summary

Mr. Buzzard offers the animals of the forest a ride to see the whole world in exchange for a piece of food, but when he is high above the earth, he flips over and demands the remaining food to land safely. This works well until he tries the same stunt with Mr. Monkey who devices a plan to get all the food back for his friends.
