On the edge of a clearing in the woods there's something mysterious lying on the ground. What on earth could it be? The raven thinks it is a piece of star fallen from the sky. The leopard fears he has lost his own spot! The cat thinks it's her poo and buries it. The fox simply has no idea what it could be. What do you think it is?
Originally published in Germany as Etwas Schwarzes and translated from Farsi by Nazli Hodaie, this newly adapted English edition features a brand-new cover and additional spot art.
