This gentle adventure story about the effects of climate change ends on a hopeful note.

“When I grow up,” says Finn, “I want to be an explorer and travel around the world. I want to see wild animals and strange birds.””Why wait?” asks Leo.
And so, the next morning, they wake up early and set out on a snowy expedition to search for wild animals. In their grandfather”s time, the forest was full of animals – but today the forest is quiet. Where have the animals gone?
