Three lonely riverside dwellers - a boy, a firefly, and a cricket - are all trying to make sense of unexpected changes in their world. Each has a secret dream, but each finds himself trapped. Becoming friends brings them happiness and solidarity, but more changes are in store. Each character stands up to his greatest fear, and, in doing so, finds his greatest strength.

"Despite warnings of the dangers of their human neighbors, two tiny creatures, Cricket and Firefly, boldly break the barrier and befriend a miniature giant, a boy named Peter. Jessica Almasy's narration bounces with the cheerful energy of youth and is accompanied by the loud "thump thumps" of the human giants. Listeners will cheer Firefly's successful attempts to perform challenging flying maneuvers and rally behind Cricket's attempts to catch dandelion fluff like baseball legend Yogi Berra. The insects join Peter and an elderly river vole in exploring new terrain and possibilities. Almasy delivers this charming tale with charming emotion, making it an ideal family choice.
