Ben | 3 comments Read when i was maybe young so 1990 to 2005ish. Magical world where the only child of the king and queen cried a lot. Had 3 triplet sisters as nannies, with red hair and freckles. They loved fish and chips. One day they went through a magic door/ cave, that only opens every 10 years or so for a short time. They accidently left the child behind, and everyone was very sad. Many years later, when the door can open again, a group goes back to find the child. In the group was at least one of the sisters, maybe more, and an elderly wizard, who was in charge. I think they find the child and he helps them to get back to their world. Sorry, thats all i can remember.

Ben | 3 comments There was also something about some small white seal like animals. Think they were magic and sang a tune, like a lulluby. Fairly sure they were important, and part of the quest was also to save one of these.
