After Beth gets trapped in the bubble, she floats away over her house, her school, the park, and the lake.
Soon, Beth lands in the bush where she meets some animal friends, like Waagoosh (the fox), Waawaashkesh (the deer), and more. Can the animals help Beth pop the bubble? How will she get home? Join Beth as she embarks on this exciting adventure with her animal friends and learns all about teamwork and friendship.
