Synopses & Reviews
In the second Tale from the Five Kingdoms, the green-tongued witch Truda Hangnail sets her sights on Queen Bluebella (TM)s throne, enlisting the kingdoma (TM)s rats and shrinking the good witches of Wadingburn to pave her way. Luckily, a sweet-natured orphan named Loobly is witness to Trudaa (TM)s evil spells and sets off to fetch some familiar help. Will the combined strengths, smarts, and charms of Trueheart Gracie Gillypot, Prince Marcus, Marlon the bat, and Gubble the troll be enough to defeat the Deep Magic of Truda Hangnail?
