    Van Der Horn-Gibson's play delves into complicated issues which trouble children and which they may not entirely understand, issues of bullying, or the illness or death of a parent. The playwright tells this story, however, with playfulness, color and humor, seeing the world through the eyes of a six year-old girl as she explores her backyard with a troupe of unique and diverse imaginary animal friends. The best children's plays are those which are smart and open-hearted, appealing to an audience of all ages, and this is one of those.

    This play is a fantastic ride. A beautiful examination of the debilitating fear that holds us back from possibility, told through the infinite imagination of a young girl. This play deals with family trauma, depression, and the self-saboteurs that hold us back from experiencing life to its fullest.
