Deep in the woods, behind the meadow where the foxes keep their secrets and beyond the valley where the moon sleeps, the star tree grows, Surrounded by wish flowers full of the hopes of child dreamers, the stars ripen on its branches until they are ripe enough with light for the fairies to pick and scatter in the sky.
Jake Skunk loved to ride his scooter around the park as fast as could go. The wind whipping through his tail and ruffling his fur was fantastic, and sometimes he got the wheels spinning so fast he felt like he was flying, When little Mandy Mouse wanted to go with him, he’d tie her roller skate to the back of his scooter with a shoelace and they’d both go zooming down the path, laughing and smiling the whole time.
With his little sailboat, the Hedgehog set off in search of his dreams. He chased them over the waves and across the ocean. They always seemed to be just a little out of reach — but he didn’t let that stop him. He knew one day he would catch them and hold them in his paws, lifting them up to twinkle among the golden stars, and this made him smile.
