It all starts with a letter……
Just a simple letter......
Once opened, life will never be the same.
Nurk, a small and reclusive shrew discovers a cry for help once he opens a letter that may have been intended for his missing Grandma, Surka.  Struggling with the thought of having committed mail fraud by opening the letter, Nurk must decide what to do next. Should he help? But where would he start? Following clues in the letter, Nurk sets out on an adventure that both thrills and terrifies him. Can a very small and somewhat brave shrew make a difference? Follow Nurk’s adventures and find out for yourself.   (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2009-2010)
