The protagonist Sha Wa, a little boy, and the magpies living in a poplar tree are good friends. Sha Wa has been curious about what the inside of a magpie net looks like for a long time but he does not have any chance to find out. One day, the poplar tree was blown down by the sandstorm and Sha Wa could finally see the inside of the magpie net. Sha Wa was surprised by seeing the water in the almost destroyed net, and he felt the ferociousness and gentleness of the nature. The concise text and grand illustration outstandingly present the scenery in northwest China, the great power of the nature and the warmth of the people’s emotion. It is a beautiful song for the nature and human nature, which arises the readers to think about the relation between human and nature.
