Along the way, everybody that Big Bird meets gives him a cheer-up present to bring to Snuffy. Oscar gives him a jar of sardine-and-sauerkraut soup, Bert loans Snuffy his bottlecap collection, and Cookie Monster contributes a box of cookie crumbs. Betty Lou, the Count and Gladys the Cow also have presents for Snuffy.
When Big Bird gets to Snuffy's cave, he feels embarrassed -- everyone has a present for Snuffy, and he forgot to bring anything himself. Plus, he's left a trail of dripping ice cream everywhere.
The book was reissued by Bendon Publishing in 2009 as part of the Storybook Classics series in honor to celebrate Sesame Street's 40th anniversary. The 2009 reissue features a full color poster inside the book.
