In Rafi and Rosi, Rafi amazes Rosi with the magic he finds everywhere. He can move sand with his magic fingers. He can shoot stars from the sky. He can even find the smallest tree in the forest. Then one day Rafi's pet hermit crab runs away. Now it's Rosi's turn to show that she knows where to look for magic too. Can she find the crab in time for them to watch it shed its shell?
