“On the table there were many dishes of bamboo shoots – the panda’s favorite food! Beside each panda was pair of chopsticks. But the chopsticks were three feet long! The pandas were getting madder and hungrier every minute. The curious panda saw why: Not one of them could figure out how to eat with their three-foot-long chopsticks!” – Demi
