Synopsis


Tom asks Mine and Mona for a slice of bread with strawberry jam and honey. But instead of helping him, they explain how boring and silly Tom and his slice of bread with strawberry jam and honey are. Tom is very upset and hides out. Luckily, a poor little girl finds him and comforts him with the help of his friends.
