Cookie Monster finds a magical Cookie Tree in the forest. The witch who owns the tree doesn't want Cookie Monster eating all her cookies, so she casts a spell on the tree -- it'll now only give cookies to people who'll share them. Cookie Monster hurries back to Sesame Street to find someone to share cookies with, but all of his friends think he's kidding -- they know Cookie Monster would never share cookies. Dejected, Cookie Monster returns to the tree to discover that the witch is also prevented from taking cookies, as she won't share either. They agree to share the cookies with each other, but once they have shared a single cookie, Cookie Monster promptly eats every other cookie on the tree, much to the annoyance of the tree and the witch, who wonders why she didn't raise radishes.
This book is partially presented in comic book style, with some of the dialogue in word balloons.
