Lou Ann (a bear) is making a doughnut feast in preparation for her long winter's nap. But just before she takes the first bite, DING DONG! Her friend Woodrow (a woodchuck) drops by. Lou Ann is happy to share her doughnuts, but as soon as she and Woodrow sit down to eat, DING DONG! Clyde (a raccoon) is at the door. One by one, Lou Ann's friends come over--Topsy (an opossum) and then Mofette (a skunk) and then Chip and Chomp (chipmunks)--until it's one big party. Luann welcomes her surprise guests and makes batch after batch of doughnuts, always dividing them equally among her friends. But she makes one BIG miscalculation. Soon Lou Ann's kitchen is bare, winter is near, and she's had nothing to eat at all!
