Following the long journey of a cute, imaginary, morph-like creature and his playful friends as they travel across the countryside throughout an entire season, this delightful and touching story presents a number of questions for adults and children to consider, such as how we are affected by the passage of time. It is a story of depth and poignant details that subtly reveals the answers to its questions in a beautiful and understated way.
