Every year on the first of May, a shining cloud of fireflies heralds the return of spring to a tiny village at the foot of the Yellow Mountains. But this year, something has gone terribly wrong. The fireflies have not appeared, and the village is frozen in endless winter. No one knows what to do, least of all Jackie Healy, the clumsiest boy for miles around. The only thing Jackie can do is to be his tripping, crashing, bumbling self. And little does anyone suspect that his clumsiness could be the very thing that will save the village....

Alice Hoffman has woven an enchanting tale about luck, magic, and unexpected heroism.
