Story Summary

When young Cody stays in the forest too late picking Huckleberries he takes refuge in an abandoned cabin. His solitude is soon interrupted by a series of talking animals each bigger than the previous and each refusing to tell him what is going on until Martin gets there, but Cody high-tales it before he meets Martin.
