Luna is angry because her brother Leon has scribbled and scrawled all over her winged toy horse Stella. At night, Stella suddenly speaks to Luna: she wants to attend the meeting of the magic animals in the enchanted forest but the scrawls and scribbles make her feel really ugly. When Leon hears of this, he’s really sorry. The siblings use his gold paint to paint Stella’s fur. As a reward, Stella takes the children with her to the enchanted forest.
