內容簡介
兄弟倆像尋常一樣出門散步,越走越遠。
他們覺得生活的這個地方太普通、太無趣了,總渴望一些新奇的事物。
於是弟弟便忍不住猜想:地下有××嗎?
有××嗎……但每一次都被知識面更廣、閱歷更豐富的哥哥否定了。
他們對地下一無所知,最後得出了一個遺憾的結論:要是生活在別的地方該多好啊!
哪怕比這裡特別一點點……那些我們看不見的東,真的不存在嗎?

The real world around you is just as marvelous as your imagination.
The older brother takes the younger to a walk. Along the way, the younger cannot stop asking his older brother if their place has these things which are seemingly cool and interesting. Though the older brother keeps denying, there is, actually, a treasure buried deep down under their world. Great things are right around you, and you just need to find them.
