There once was a boy, a rabbit, a magic seed, and a book...
The boy, who was bored, went looking for something to do.
The rabbit, who was curious, explored until he was lost.
The seed was thirsty, but soon it grew and grew and grew.
And the book? Turn the pages! It will make you so happy.
"A satisfying look at the interplay of nature, time, and love." (Publishers Weekly)
