The Nobble lives in a world all his own a fantastical world where you can do the impossible things of dreams. It's a nice life and all he's ever known. Yet one day he begins to think about finding some place he hasn t been yet. Or maybe seeing something he hasn t seen yet. Or . . . "something." So he sets off on a journey to an unusual place, where he discovers roary things, fuzzy things, and tall, shiny, rectangular things. Then a door knocks. If only he knew what a door was . . .

C. K. Williams and Stephen Gammell's enchanting tale is about finding the courage to go out and search for what you want most in the world. And sometimes, that's a friend.
