Tuule and Uku are eight-year-old twins. They only have a father, because their mother has gone to be with the good fairies. That's what Tuule believes. In fall, the children go to second grade in a new school, where new knowledge and new little adventures await them. Uku loves to read more than anything, and all Tuule wants is to get some kind of a pet. Their father, who hasn't exactly been feeling great since their mother's death, seems to get his second wind in life after meeting the children's teacher, Laura Leevike. Suddenly, life at home starts moving towards the better, and the children aren't exactly having the worst time at school, either. Even Santa's elves find their old shoes. Christmas vacation becomes the world's greatest school break thanks to a kitten rescued from the hands of some bad boys, and the children decide to organize a party for fast-arriving Valentine's Day. Everyone, including their cat Roosi, can invite one guest. And when Uku invited Kärt, their father the teacher Leevike, and Roosi Jürgen, who is Tuule's guest?
