A dangerous journey of the cheeky hedgehog girl Latte to take back the magic waterstone from the claws of Bantur, the Bear King, to save the forest to not dry out.



The forest and its inhabitants are suffering under a terrible drought. The ponds are drying up and the situation is hopeless. The only one who refuses to stand by passively and wait is Latte the girl hedgehog. She decides to set out on a dangerous journey to take back the magic waterstone from the claws of Bantur, the Bear King, and thereby end the drought. However, before Latte can confront the dreadful Bear King, she must first pass through the forest of the dangerous lynxes, and the realm of the devious wolves. To her great irritation, Latte is being accompanied on her adventure — by none other than Tjum the squirrel, who is determined to follow her. These two could not be more different: Latte is sly and always ready to get into mischief. She lives in a phantasy world where her missing father is a king. By contrast, Tjum is sober and sensible. As the oldest of his many siblings, he has almost forgotten that he is still a child. Grudgingly these two squabblers come to recognize that the only way they can survive the breathtaking dangers and obstacles they encounter on their journey is to stick together. The perilous journey ends well and the two manage to bring the water-stone back to their forest. In addition, not only does Latte gain a new friend, but also a family.
