When the Little Prince and Fox meet the Lithians, a people of stone, trouble is afoot: a menacing mass of brambles is threatening to invade and tear down their city. Jade, the city’s ruler, refuses to evacuate. His missing son, Mica, has gone on a quest to bring back the stone-seeds that can protect the city from the attacks of brambles, and he hasn’t returned yet.
