The king had consulted the sage of the hills,

Who said ending a drought was beyond his small skills.

But if someone could spread some snow in the sky,

The rain would return — they would see by and by!


There has been no rain for months. The crops are failing and the people and animals are thirsty. Only Darren can help, so he sets out on a journey to find a special snow that will return water to the land. Can Darren succeed in his quest to break this dreadful drought?
