    A tale of musical plants, dancing animals, and one little girl’s dream of saving the planet—includes a special augmented-reality feature!   Pacha’s imagination is bigger than the Andes Mountains, homeland of her ancestors. In her dreams, the plants and animals on her PJs come alive—and she journeys with them to learn more about herself.   Then after a stress-induced asthma attack, her magical pajamas carry her into an epic dream where she encounters a handful of critters lamenting the state of their home. Disguised as a little gorilla, Pacha joins in, and together they decide to organize a Nature Festival that brings all species together. Full of musical plants and dancing animals, the PACHA JAMMA festival is a worldwide call to action to save the planet from destruction.   But Mr. Tick seems to be scheming to disrupt the festival. With the help of her plant and animal friends, Pacha races against time to decipher a cryptic puzzle that outlines Mr. Tick’s dastardly plans. But just as she is on the verge of victory, a massive hurricane threatens them all . . .   This exciting tale with a message of empowerment and environmental responsibility, including lots of fun science facts and a bonus augmented-reality animation feature, is “a critical tool in giving children a sense of themselves, the power of their dreams and the natural world around them” (Mos Def/Yasiin Bey, actor and recording artist).
