Winter has come early in the Land of Orb and so it is that the Tufties quickly harvest their crops, give their thanks to the Stones and set off through the snow-covered hills, across the river, through the night and on to warmer climes...But disaster strikes when Tooki slips and plummets down a deep crevasse and is thought lost forever. So begins Tooki's brave journey of survival...And just when he least expects it, he unravels some of his life's most enduring mysteries.
