Hsiao-Yu lives in Taiwan. Whenever she writes her name, she also writes «little fish» – this is the meaning of her name‘s characters in Chinese.
Today Hsiao-Yu is going for a little walk, she has to get eggs for dinner. We follow her through her world full of wonders: One time her world turns blue, another time blurry. She meets the shadow cat, and finds a little flower and a new friend, too. There is a lot to see when going for a walk with Hsiao-Yu!
