A new main character is introduced in book two of this delightful series. Mendanbar, King of the Enchanted Forest is feeling somewhat overwhelmed with all his duties and decides to go on a little walk. When he finally arrives at his destination (which isn't that easy because the Enchanted Forest is constantly shifting position) he finds a silly, lost princess. His opinion of princesses is not too high and this princess meets his expectations. He soon realizes that all is not right in his domain as a part of the Enchanted Forest has not only been burned, (possibly by dragons) but the magic is also missing. A talking squirrel advices him to visit Morwen the witch.

Meanwhile, Princess Cimorene, who refuses to be a proper princess and has the highest disdain for princes and knights who insist on rescuing her, has her own problems. The King of the Dragons (who happens to be a grandmother) is missing. Soon Menanbar and Cimorene meet and decide to join forces in discovering who is behind all this nonsense.

Flying carpets, a descendant of Rumpelstiltskin (named Herman of course), and giants who are constantly visited by persistent young men named Jack are just some of the delightful characters that this pair meet.
