Snibbles (a young hedgehog) and Big Tree are best friends and love each other very much. When Big Tree falls ill with woodworm, Snibbles is very upset and angry. The illness is a very bad one which needs lots of medical treatment, and Big Tree doesn’t feel very well. He is tired, loses his leaves and doesn’t want to play. Snibbles is keen to help Big Tree get better. He gives him hugs and kisses, wraps him up warmly and stays close by. After a long time and lots of waiting, Big Tree begins to recover.
