A boy moves to the city and works on trying to fit in his new school. One snowy day he saw kids outside playing and ended up joining them. They all built a snowman and multiple different animals. As spring came around he was given seeds and him and his new friends planted them on the roof of his apartment building.

A first person account of meeting a girl named Mia who lives in Chile, between the big city and the snowy mountains. Mia and her family live off what the city throws away. Their house is built of odds and ends, though her father dreams of building a house of bricks. The people in her village are very clever about fixing what they find. Her father sells scrap in the city every day and one day he returns with a puppy for her. But during the hard winter, Poco the puppy disappears, so Mia sets out on the horse called Sancho to look for her throughout the dumps. She searches far and wide, until she finds herself up in the mountains above the city and her village. She and Sancho enjoy the beauty and the solitude of the spot. Though they don't find Poco, they do find some white flowers on the way back down and Mia gathers a clump of them to take home and remind her of "how she looked for Poco and found this place in the stars." Back home, she plants the flowers and their seeds spread , creating beauty in the dumps. Eventually she asks her father if she can try to sell her white flowers in the city, and the business proves so profitable, her father gives up selling scraps to help her and work together towards their dream of a house of bricks. When people asked where she found such flowers, she always answered "They come from the stars." And whenever packs of dogs would run by, Mia would remember Poco -- and one day a dog stopped to smell the flowers and licked Mia's face.… (mais)
