AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a little house in a dark forest, a toymaker lives all alone. One day, a small brown bird bears the magic sounds of the toymaker's violin, and flies down to him. Together they make music so enchanting that even the trees shiver and murmur in wonder. But as the seasons change, the little bird dreams of the wide open sky and a life beyond the tops of the trees...' Source: www.penguin.com.au/ (Sighted 06/10/2009).
