It’s Martin's final Thursday of Goose-eye Wilderness School before the holiday break — the Thursday where the 'deermice' are going to give home-made natural gifts to each other — and he is puzzling over what to give Jayla. He wants something surprising, something fun, something sparkly, and something quietly adventurous to give his friend - but it is his little sister Sylvia that comes up with just the right thing.
