Pikolo's room is overflowing with the wonderful paper cut-out friends he has made. He has taped them to the walls and strung them over his bed so they float and turn slowly around him. Sometimes he feels as if he's in the middle of the jungle; Pikolo imagines he can hear animals calling to each other from far away.
Miraculously, one of his cut-outs, a little man named Max, comes to life and leads Pikolo through his closet to a magical fantasy land made of paper.
