A gold leaf appears in the forest. As soon as the animals notice it, each wants it more than anything else in the world. But in their struggle for it, the leaf is destroyed. Heartbroken, the animals wonder: Will we ever again see such a leaf?
"A former Adventure Time artist creates lush landscapes for a modern fable about a pack of forest animals who inadvertently destroy a cherished gold leaf. For readers who like: timeless tales for adults as much as children."
