Luna Wunderwald’s new home lies deep in the forest, where the ground is covered in moss and the sun paints rings in the trees’ foliage. In a secret attic space she finds a magical flute that has amazing powers: when she plays it, she can communicate with the forest animals. Will she be able to save the white deer Arto from poachers? By keeping her wits about her, and with the help of many other animals, she can do it.
