When a glacier starts to melt, a massive dam of ice fractures and floods an old growth forest! Small, stick creatures called Old Seeder Twigs are stranded in their tree home by raging floodwaters. Their fate is tied to an enormous and sinister beaver far away. A young Twig named Leaf and his fearless friend Rustle fly off on a gigantic leaf across dangerous grasslands seeking help. But the journey proves far more treacherous than imagined, and their only hope for rescue dims. Jittery chipmunks and a mysterious Twig stranger join the perilous mission, but time is growing very short. The Old Seeder is drowning. The goliath beaver must build a mighty dam to save Leaf's home, but will he even try? Twigs live in a fragile world of old forests and magnificent glaciers threatened by climate change, yet Twigs stick together to survive! Royalties are shared with nonprofits concerned with wildlife protection, climate change research, nature conservancy, and forest preservation. Twig stories are beautifully illustrated by D.W. Murray, an award-winning Disney artist. His credits include Mulan, Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear, and Curious George. He is a recipient of the New York Society of Illustrators Gallery and the 2004 Gold Aurora Award.
