The forest is quiet and peaceful until one day, a tapping starts that just won’t seem to stop. All the forest animals set out to find who could be making such a deafening racket. At the top of an old fir tree, they find a little woodpecker-boy. No matter how nicely the animals ask for some peace and quiet, the woodpecker keeps on pecking. Why on earth is he pecking so loud that it echoes through the whole forest? When will quiet and tranquility finally return?
