The Girl Who Walked Upside Down
This is the tale of a very special girl. She came to us one spring day after a storm, walking upside down by the rainbow. Perhaps due to her special way of walking, she has a unique way of looking at things, in particular the sky, and an affection for the Moon and stars. The girl who walked upside down is committed to the fight against light pollution.
