Nobody dares to go near the broccoli tree: it smells much too bad! Craving for mushrooms growing at the tree’s base, Pepito and Didlidou will nevertheless get closer to it and eventually get acquainted with the strange plant. How could they convince their friends to come and see for themselves how pretty it is up there?
