Through the eyes of a child, the world is full of adventure! 

A teacup-sized little girl discovers a playground in a potted plant, and the perfect swimming pool in a glass of water. Then when she sees a mysterious shadow lurking beyond her books and paper clips, she must summon her courage. But wait! Could this fluffy, purring creature be a friend? 

Taltal Levi’s evocative text and illustrations tell an inventive story about courage, imagination, and friendship.
