I hid in the bag, but Nontan borrowed it from Tanuki-kun, and Nontan returned the bag to Tanuki-kun. I want to borrow Tanuki-kun's bag, "and lost the opportunity to escape, and had no choice but to hide in the bag again.Then, when the bag passed to Usagi-san, when he was put in a large amount of apples to deliver the apples to Buta-kun, he was unfortunately crushed by the apples.Then, when the bag crossed over to Buta-kun, he was almost grabbed by Buta-kun's hand with the apple, but he managed to get nothing.Immediately after that, however, Buta-kun delivered the apples to the Kuma-kun family in order to divide the apples he received from Usagi-san into the Kuma-kun family, and Risu-kun returned to the Kuma-kun family.Then, when Kuma-kun tried to take the apple in his bag, he tried to escape in a hurry, but Risu-kun's tail was misunderstood as an apple and was grabbed, and Risu-kun did not want to let go of the stolen bread. I imagined myself crying with a sad family who had no food in my head, grabbing bread in an apple.Finally, Kuma-kun was found and thought that the stolen bread would be recovered, but Kuma-kun forgave Risu-kun, and Risu-kun was delighted with that, bowed to Kuma-kun and returned with a smile.However, the bread was quite crumpled because a large amount of apples were put in the bag when Usagi delivered the apples to Buta-kun, but Risu-kun didn't care.
