The amiable bear from Hugless Douglas is headed to a sleepover at Rabbit's. Thinking there's plenty of room, Douglas invites Little Sheep to join. What he doesn't realize is that a whole flock of sheep has tagged along, and on top of that, Douglas might be too big to fit in Rabbit's burrow. A silly, feel-good bedtime story with an underwhelming resolution.
