Tonka says that at his new home, candy falls from the trees.
He snuffles along, hunting for acorns with as much enthusiasm as a pig searching for truffles.

Pip and Caper have been spending their days watching the leaves fluttering down and snarfing up the tastiest ones.
However, being lazy boys, given their druthers, they’d prefer to be hand fed.
Not all candy comes in a bag.
