Can there be anything worse than winter without snowflakes and frosts? Exactly such a dreary winter hits the world. People drown in mud, in the dark, there is only gray rain instead of snow. Why did this happen and what to do? Is there a man who will save everyone? There is! It’s a boy Liežuviukas (Tongue), Liežuviukas Šaunuoliukas (Tongue the Great), a really brave boy. This poetic tale is about a boy who, after passing all the challenges and is not afraid to get dirty, receives a miraculous gift. When it snows on the ground, do know that it is Liežuviukas Šaunuoliukas flying in the sky and scattering snowflakes.
