Welcome to Carles Porta's beautifully imagined world, where tiny onion-headed ballerinas dance among multicolored autumn leaves, and new friends are found in the strangest ways.

It's Fall in the hidden valley and there's a sense of change in the air. Ticky the bird is about to fly away to warmer places, and his wolf friend Yula is painting him a farewell gift. But when Yula draws, she loses all sense of the world around her, and then gets lost in the forest. Will Ticky be able to find her?
