Luce and the Rock (for exploratory kids)

'Luce and the Rock' is a modern fairytale about a little girl who discovers that the world is bigger than the one she lives in. She befriends a lost rock, who's searching for a new place to call home.



Luce lives a happy life in a peaceful little village, together with her mother and the other villagers. Every day is the same, and that’s the way everyone likes it. The only thing that scares Luce is the dark, but luckily her little light keeps her safe! One day a giant Rock Creature disturbs the quiet life in the village.
