Story Summary

Erica's parents have no time for her, leaving her free to explore. When one day she sees a sign pointing to a "hidden village", her curiosity gets the better of her and,squeezing through a crack in a barn door, she finds an entire miniature village replete with models of tiny people -or so she thinks until she sees the thumbnail-sized dog bark and wag his tail.
