It happened like this. On the first morn, the children who typically woke first anyway, began their day without knowing anything was amiss. As the morning hours passed, more and more children woke to a strangely quiet town.  More and more children found their grown guardians still slumbering: mothers, fathers, grand-folks, aunts, uncles, teachers, trade masters, even the town leaders. Even some of those who had just passed over the cusp of adulthood, like Sig’s older brother. All were asleep and could not be roused. The children tried shaking, shouting, dousing with water, pricking and pinching. Nothing worked.


With all the grown folk trapped in sleep, the children of Gorgulya tend their town, and soon are called to defend it from a nightmarish enemy.

Will they succeed in waking the grown folk and in saving their town?

Find out in this episode.
