A young man uses the wood from his small cottage to make meters-high stilts, and goes out into the world. He walks high above the tops of a vast pine forest, wades through the endless depths of the Pacific Ocean. In the Grand Canyon all is bright orange, at the North Pole, all is icy blue.
Snorkelers, monkeys, mountain climbers, mermaids … The stilt walker meets the craziest of characters during his fantastic journey through the world. And he arrives home safely in the end. Much richer, much wiser, his world and himself much brighter and more colourful than before.
