The Secret of Platform 13 blends two worlds, the normal earth, with a mystical island kingdom that has every magical creature and everyone is gloriously happy. The Prince is stolen while being trapped outside of the passage between the two worlds as an infant and is brought up as an orphan boy to cater to his captor, her husband, and her son that is his age. The story is about the ogre, banshees, and other characters that plan a rescue mission to save him.
The story blends the frustrations of being an orphan, magic, and another world. There are multiple other components of belonging, friendship, and tolerance that go along with how the story is created. There is a huge resemblance to the good versus evil in the sense that the Prince was captured, and life lessons are learned. This is a perfect fantasy story that captures imagination and allows for new types of characters to be brought into a students learning.
