One morning Elsie, a cabbage farmer, discovers that half of her crop is missing. She decides to stand watch in her cabbage patch all night to catch the culprit. Unfortunately, she falls asleep, only to awaken to even fewer cabbages! With the help of her two cats and some homemade cabbage soup, Elsie gains control of the long-eared perpetrators. Instead of nibbling her cabbages, they end up keeping her warm at night. Children will enjoy being a step or two ahead of Elsie in this cozy story about cultivating friendship.
