The Chestnut Seller

Four stories from a long time ago that are related to the seasons: baskets of spring strawberries, ants that work through the summer while the cicadas shrill, the aroma of baked chestnuts and sweet potatoes in the autumn, and forests of fir trees covered in snow winter. They are stories which make us think about very human things like love, duty, responsibility, fellowship and the need to feel useful.
