Alice would like to join her mother when she travels to study animals all around the world, but she can’t. One day, she finds out that she can become very tiny, so she hides in her mom’s backpack. It’s so exciting meeting all the animals she had known only through books in their own environment! Cheetahs, monkeys, whales, penguins, elephants…
