The Disobedient Stone
Rights sold: Spanish
In Gagabe Forest, even a gentle breeze has to be careful passing through. The forest is home to creatures so set in their ways, you couldn’t imagine. Sensitive and old-fashioned, they live lives
where everything stays the same.
Nothing is allowed to change, because they believe that even the smallest change could bring disaster to Gagabe Forest. This means: the number of trees in the forest must stay the same, and at the same heights; everyone has to take the same road home every day; everyone has to keep the same hair...
They would accept nothing new, nothing adventurous. They live according to tradition.
Their lives are as flat and predictable as a glass of plain water. To make sure that everything in the forest stays the same, a neighborhood watch called Team Six patrols the entire forest every day to check that everything is the same as yesterday.
This is where our story begins. A stone appears in the forest, and no one knows why. Sometimes it glows, sometimes it makes strange sounds. Team Six is stumped.
How could they restore Gagabe Forest back to the way it was ...?
