Darby Meets Tall Town takes Darby and his new friend, Shyrka, on another fun adventure. Down the Trail of the Willows, through the B'lack Forest, and across the meadow is Tall Town, Shyrka's home. While out gathering pine berries for Darby's mother, Shyrka and Darby talk about helping others as chief's apprentices, and how important it is to gain the trust of the village m'ites. Shyrka thinks about his family, wishing they would accept him and wondering if they miss him. What happens along the trail and in Tall Town helps Darby and Shyrka understand the meaning of helping others and the importance of family.
