When young Fiona arrives in the town of Calico, she encounters a group of mysterious rabbit-like creatures, led by the peculiar street boy Jaden, who rarely speaks and claims to come from the moon. But when a creepy corporation starts bulldozing the nearby forests, she finds herself uncovering a whole world of secrets, and drawn into Jaden's battle for the soul of a community.
Diana Thung's debut Top Shelf graphic novel is a true adventure, rooted in the diverse local traditions of Asian festival culture, with a modern sensibility and a hint of magic.
