We're not always born into our home -- sometimes we have to go out and find it.

Digby has always felt a little different from everyone else. For some reason he's just never felt like he belonged. He longs for a place that felt like home, and one day his yearning sends him on a journey of discovery that takes him to a place where the air is different, and there's a rushing sound quite unlike anything he's ever heard before. At last, he finds a place where ''feeling different'' feels just right.

Since Digby's debut in Germany in 2007, he has charmed thousands. Now, at last, he's setting sail for the United States!
