Text of Lego-Man's story....

Ka-Bam!!! Squirrel suddenly woke up from his hibernation. He was covered in snow. He called out, "Who did that?!?!" Coconut the Fox called back, "Sorry, come down and play!" Now Squirrel just loved to play, so he threw his ladder out and came down to play. Coconut made a snowball and threw it at Squirrel. Now Squirrel didn't like this so he said, "Don't do that!" and Coconut said, "No, I won't!" So Squirrel made a snowball and threw it at Coconut. After a good snowball fight they went ice skating, made a snowman, and made snow angels. It was grand fun, but after all that Squirrel said, "I have had great fun Coconut, but I have to go to sleep again." So, back in his den Squirrel went back to sleep till spring.
