The Somewhat True Adventures of Sammy Shine
When Sammy Shine's plane takes off unexpectedly, he ends up in a whole new world; no longer does he live in comfort in his shoebox in Hank's room. Now he's lost in the woods, with no way to get home and a dangerous new enemy. Fortunately, a group of new friends, including a mouse, an injured crow, a newt, and a shrew, will help him find and repair his plane so he can try to get back home.
