Sprout is young, Sprout is small, and Sprout is not very strong. But, when Sprout’s birthday party is ruined by Shade Man, and a whole year goes by of Shade Man casting his shadow, Sprout decides it’s time to do something about it. The shade is causing all the forest family to be sad. With Shade Man blocking the sun, there are no parties and no fun. So, Sprout brings together his whole forest family to move Shade Man and bring back the sun. Even the older trees, who are hesitant to move their roots, decide a change is needed.
