The Know-Nothings can’t figure out what to eat. Noodles are too hard, bananas wear funny coats, and everyone knows you can only get French fries in France. But even though Boris, Morris, Doris, and Norris may not know much about food, they do know one very important thing—how to be good friends!

Four friends called The Know-Nothings, because they don’t know very much, decide to make lunch.
