"What are you?" "Where are you from?" These are questions this mysterious creature has been asked all her life—and she has no idea how to answer. The rabbit was born from a planter's hole; the wolf was born from moonlight. All the animals know their origin stories, so why doesn't the creature now known as Wutaryoo know her own?
