Two sisters remember their mother saying, "The carousel horses sleep all winter and wake in the spring." But one gray-skied February twilight, as the girls make their way home from school, they hear strange whinnying noises coming from the carousel in the park. Peeking inside the carousel canvas, the sisters step into the unknown. Could it be that the horses are moving ... clopping their hooves ... alive?
