Auntie Mabel is getting ready to go to a party. She hangs her washing on the line to dry in the wind, including her best red blouse. Pippin is playing in the garden. A strong gust of wind blows the red blouse off the washing line. Pippin sees it go and chases after it. Meanwhile Auntie Mabel is doing her hair ready for the party. She tells Aesop's fable about the North Wind and the Sun. When she discovers both Pippin and her blouse are missing, she takes off in her aeroplane to look for them. Pippin has caught the blouse and Auntie Mabel takes them both home again. But now her hair is in a mess, her blouse is dirty and Pippin has fallen fast asleep, tired out after her long chase.
