Lump, the ugliest boy in the world, is abandoned in the forest, where he is found and taken in by a witch.
With a bear for a nanny, a genie as a servant and only a cat to talk to, the household is a strange one, but Lump grows up knowing nothing but love.
Until one day he has to go out and face the world - and meets rejection at every turn.
This is the story of Lump's difficult journery to adulthood, his craving for the magical powers of his mother and his search for love and acceptance, set against the backdrop of a world full of natural magic in delicate balance, where the slightest disturbance can be catastrophic.
