Description

When Fred gets a letter from his friend Lola, object of his secret crush, he is too excited to open the letter immediately. Unfortunately his cat Ric shreds the letter before Fred can read it and he cannot make sense of it when he tries to put it back together. His grandmother offers to help him unravel the mystery and puts his hopes and dreams back together.
This story of hope and perseverance is also one of quirky humour.
