Walking as “quiet as mice and rabbits and deer” a grandfather and his grandson come upon fresh moose droppings in the woods, and set out to find the moose itself. They discover the branches where the moose ate breakfast, greet a chipmunk and goose, and inspect rosehips and pussy willows, but the moose is nowhere to be found. Finally, after accepting that they will have to try again next time, the boy and his grandfather head home… only to be met with a big surprise.
