Loli loves nature and animals. She takes in Pati, a little monkey and his family rescued from a bush fire by her father. Loli, her family and classmates then create a pleasant environment with a vegetable garden, an orchard and a fish pond.
How did Loli’s orchard become a small forest? That is what you will discover in this album rich in anecdotes and teachings.
