Inconvenient owners of thrones in the kingdoms of the Islands of Sunshine have a habit of attracting the attention of an Evil Magician - and then disappearing! Prince Daimur, who, fortunately, has a helpful and caring disposition, receives some special gifts from a dying fairy. So when he, too, becomes inconvenient and is "disappeared", he possesses some potent defenses against spells.
On the Island of Despair, his natural curiosity and good nature wins him allies as he attempts to solve the puzzles that await him. And with diligence, courage, and some good luck, the dispossessed royalty might actually stage a comeback!
