PlayKit | The Last Firefly
by Naomi Iizuka
It begins with light, a sliver, a flash, then comes a sound, a pulse, a beat, a crash like a giant hammer smashing through the sky. Thus, the story of Boom, the son of Thunder, begins as he sets out on an epic search for his father, ultimately discovering his true self and the strength within him that always existed. This mythical adventure will transport you on a fantastic journey where the littlest things can make all the difference in the world.
“Iizuka brings to life a tale that is at times both heartening and adventurous.” – How Was the Show?
