It’s winter. It’s windy outside and there are many sounds. The rabbit tries to calm her nerves by eating a carrot, which usually helps. But she doesn’t want to be alone. She goes to the horse. The horse doesn’t want to be there, as there are so many strange shadows. They go to the hen. But the hen is also afraid. They go to the magpie. He thinks the wind is unusually strong. They all go to the pig, as it’s no fun being alone in the wind. But the pig is lying there, sleeping deeply, and doesn’t understand what the others want. We thought you’d be afraid, they say. But the pig clearly hasn’t thought about this. He simply wants to sleep.

Illustrated by Per Dybvig.
