If the cat stops chasing the mouse, and the dog stops hounding the cat, and the little girl stops worrying the dog, and Grandma stops scolding the little girl, and Grandpa stops telling Grandma to keep her cool, maybe – just maybe – everyone will be able to work together to get that giant carrot out of the garden! Vibrant animation brings this funny story of dinnertime antics to life.
