In a secret, magical forest lives the beautiful Forest Queen. In the summer the forest is warm and the Queen loves dancing in the dappled sunlight, but in the winter she becomes cold and hungry. One day she decides to visit the Forest Elf on the other side of the wood, as she knows he has food and a warm cloak. But the Queen is rather spoilt and does not know how to ask nicely. Once she learns The Magic Word she discovers the beauty of sharing and the joys of true friendship.
