Synopsis


One day in winter Little John Bailey is walking in the forest. His hands are cold and to warm them, he sets a tree alight. Soon the whole forest is ablaze. All the grown-ups who have to extinguish the fire are angry with Little John Bailey and he wonders how he'll ever make friends again. His problems are solved when he meets Big Tooter, a very exceptional elephant and together they discover how to extinguish fires.
