    One summer, somewhere between the top of Ptarmagin Mountain and the bottom, Baby lost his shoe. First vole turns the small red sneaker into a nest, then a mother fox plays with it, and finally a bear suspects it may be a tasty morsel. Each animal alters the shoe, then loses it, with a simple refrain tying the losses together. The following summer, the shoe returns full circle to its original owner with a surprise ending.
