Badger discovers there's no place like home.

Badger loves his cozy little cottage. The door sticks and the shutters bang, but Badger doesn't mind-until a huge storm makes a mess of his house. He doesn't think he can fix the damage, so he sells the cottage to Grandmother Mouse and moves to a lovely mansion.

But Badger feels lost and lonely in his huge new house, so he's happy when Grandmother Mouse invites him to tea. He doesn't even mind fixing the sticking door. Each time Badger visits he fixes something else, and soon the little cottage is as good as new. The only problem is that it's too small for Grandmother Mouse's family to visit. But Badger can fix that, too!
