Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Early in the morning, Gina returns to Hooper's Store with some fish. She speaks to the viewer quietly, as to not wake up her neighbors, but also to keep Wolfgang the Seal from hearing about them and allowing his barking to wake everyone up. She makes it inside, but Wolfgang appears she she says "fish." He barks loudly, waking everyone around up. She tells him he can't have any fish, so he leaves, but she has a feeling he'll be back...
