Mr Bear is not well and Mrs Bear sends Rupert for medicine. On returning he is swept up in a snowstorm. A cloud forms over a pagoda and vanishes, with snow all around. This pagoda is friend Tigerlily’s home. She takes Rupert to her father’s friend the Sorcerer, who travels in that cloud! He finds Rupert ever so inquisitive and casts a spell on some new boots that stop Rupert walking home! Then Tigerlily brushes the bootprints with a broom and undoes this magic. So Rupert finally gets back, but has lost the medicine! Tigerlily saves him again with a phial for Mr Bear.

 4. A magic potion gets Mr Bear feeling better than ever - then everyone is happy!
