Frogmouth isn’t like the other birds. She doesn’t want to live in the trees. Frogmouth is in search of something more. Frogmouth travels the land hunting for a new nesting place, but nothing feels right. On her way, she helps other animals find their true homes, but still she searches. Only when she meets Moon and hears his intriguing offer can she finally find her true home.
