When a little boy bursts into their world, three extraordinary creatures find answers to the questions that have been troubling them...Meet the Lostlet, twirling a golden leaf, and asking the questions: Where am I? What do I hope for? Meet the Stranglet, holding a smooth white pebble, asking: What am I? What do I dream of? Meet the Oddlet, listening intently to a pink seashell, asking: Who am I? What do I wish for? Lost in their own little worlds, the three creatures are powerless to find answers...until a little boy appears, asking the very same questions - and who seems stranger, odder, more lost than they. Offering comfort to the child, the Lostlet, the Strangelet and the Oddlet discover their hearts' deepest desires - and their new friend helps make their wishes and dreams come true.
