What if ten-year-old Tonton is the last boy on Earth – and his pet, Kaloy, the last dog? He wakes up one morning and finds himself and his companion trapped in his tiny bedroom of his half-submerged two-storey house. A killer typhoon washes out the entire village – perhaps the entire planet. His tender age of ten, his skinny brown body, and his inability to hear and speak – these personal attributes of his do not hinder him in surviving the wrath of nature. He frequently dreams of yellow stars whenever he yearns for his father, mother, and older brother who may have vanished in the flash flood. He finds another companion in the character of Enzo whom he rescues from a floating vehicle. Will the water subside soon? Will Tonton, Enzo, and Kaloy escape from the walls of the submerged house? And to Tonton’s dread, will he ever see his family again? Join Tonton in his silent yet adventurous world in this short tale about survival, friendship, courage, and hope, as he defies the forces of nature, believing that there will be a good end to all perils when he dreams of yellow stars.

Do you promise to serve your clan as well as you did as deputy?" "I do." "Bluejay, you were and still are loyal and Starclan will forever honor you for that. Bluejay, I demote you to warrior." Fawnstar bowed her head. "I will elect a new deputy soon." She mews, leaping off High Glaciar and padding away sadly.
Oh... she groans.
