Theo is a little short, but as the son of King Dietrich, he tries everything he can to be as big and strong as his dad, who banned the dwarves from the kingdom, who had brought fertile ground and beautiful rose gardens. Theo sets out in search of Laurin the dwarf king, discovering a whole new side of himself in the process. Terrific update of the classic South Tyrolean legend “King Laurin“.
