There was once a little girl named Bruna.
She lived in a little hut all by herself and she was always cold.
However hard Bruna tries, she always feels chilly. She bundles herself up in lots of clothes, she throws blankets on her bed, and she piles the fire high with logs. Even traveling to distant, sunny lands makes no difference.

Bruna is a little girl who can never be warm, no matter how many clothes she wears or blankets she heaps on her bed. She even migrates with the birds to Africa — but never warms up. Back home, the prospect of diving into an icy river to release a trapped bear is the last thing she needs... A contemporary fairy tale, illustrated with delicate energy.
