across a river …

 … and right up to a hole dug by Mrs. Mole!

Hugo sang out,
“My name is Hugo and I’m following this string!
As you can see, it’s a wonderful thing!
There must be something special at the end!
I’ll share it with you, my newfound friend!”

So down the hole they went!

Mrs. Mole led the way through the very long tunnel.

They popped out of another hole in the middle of the street. There they met Mr. Alligator Police!

Hugo and Mrs. Mole sang out,
“We are two friends who are following this string!
As you can see, it’s a wonderful thing!
There must be something special at the end!
We’ll share it with you, our newfound friend!”

So Mr. Alligator Police helped them follow the string through the middle of town, down the street …

 … through a noodle shop,

all the way back to the kitchen, and into a giant pot of Mr. Usagi’s noodles!

Hugo, Mrs. Mole, and Mr. Alligator Police sang out,
“We are three friends who are following this string!
As you can see, it’s a wonderful thing!
There must be something special at the end!
We’ll share it with you, our newfound friend!”

So Mr. Usagi gave them each a bowl of noodles, and together they followed the string to the end of the block, up the stairs of the old schoolhouse,

and right into Mrs. Snake’s classroom!

Hugo, Mrs. Mole, Mr. Alligator Police, and Mr. Usagi sang out,
“We are four friends who are following this string!
As you can see, it’s a wonderful thing!
There must be something special at the end!
We’ll share it with you, our newfound friend!”

Mrs. Snake and her students flew up high to point the way. Then they all hopped on a bus and traveled through the forest and up a winding road to the top of a hill.
