|Maggie, a small red-headed 5 year-old girl is transported into a drawing that she makes of a make-believe world. Once there, she meets the Ferocious Beast; a large, yellow, red polka-dotted beast who is more silly and innocent then ferocious. She also meets Hamilton Hocks, a sweater wearing pig who totes along a large cardboard box which seems to have everything everybody ever needed in it. But for times when they are out of something, there is always the river of wishes. The trio become great friends and go on all sorts of adventures together, using the drawing Maggie made of the land as a map. No matter where they go, or what obstacle gets in their way, they overcome it and have a great time doing so.
