Miki and Penguin live in a cold, dark land where nothing grows. But one Midwinter Eve, the night when the moon can weave magic and wishes come true, they wish for just one little tree.
Miraculously one springs up - all it needs is lights to decorate it. However, despite all their efforts, the lights always fade - until Miki embarks on a wonder-filled odyssey into the blue ocean depths where the magic of Midwinter Eve provides them with a gift that will spread light across their world.
Shimmering like the northern lights, the illustrations' luminous blues and greens glow out of the darkness in this chilly yet elegantly magical wintry tale of determination, friendship and hope. An Antarctic journey in a book!
