Trunks will split in two and legs and arms will appear … and in front of you the genuine inhabitants of the Glade have come to life: the Stumps, Pine, Fir, Elm, Birch, Hornbeam and old Father Oak.
A beautiful summer morning calls for a walk. The Stumps head to the Bare Hill from where they will have a beautiful view of the whole forest. Father Oak tells them they would also have a chance to observe the stars. Is he joking? How could they watch the stars in the middle of the day?
