In this book not only the naughty air balloon can fly carrying the mouse Paulīne, the bear Tobiass and his friend Cat into unknown direction. Also the rainbow fairies, the motorcycle, the witch’s broom and the carrier pigeons fly. The friends who get to know German dwarfs, musical Spanish gypsies and the king himself are carried by a multicoloured bus and a car with a wheel made of cheese. The perfect illustrations of Gundega Muzikante , just like the story itself, blur reality with fantasy making everything amazingly believable.

The wondrous vehicles take the travellers to a miraculous place where all the lost ones meet again – to Santiago de Compostela, the ancient city of Galicia in the North of Spain. Well, Paulīne doesn’t find there her home but she does find her people – the artist Lina, her little daughter Ula, the toy bear Mihalīna and the doggy Punktiņa. But home and your people - that is exactly the same, maybe even more important.
