This is the rare children’s story—both bold and tender and brimming with moments of great risk, adventure, and heart. Combining the artistic wonder of Where the Wild Things Are
with the timeless storytelling of The Polar Express
, this story will capture both the imagination and the intelligence of children and their parents as it sheds light on the power of sin, sacrifice, and redemption.
Freddie Cottonmouth and his best friend Tug, a furry beast with a heart of gold, love going on adventures. But when Freddie breaks a big promise, he discovers the effects of sin, the cost of sacrifice, and the power of redemption.
