When Sam and Henry cannot fall asleep, their mother tells them a tale about a little girl named Maggie, whose world is full of magic and secrets the faeries know, an enchanted world, most others can't sense. Maggie wonders whether she is a child, or could she be something else. And she wonders about the world too. "Do you know what the world is?" she asks her friend. Maggie asks questions, and no question is too far fetched to ask, in her mind. Magic happens around her, for no other reason except to say, she has a destiny. With the help of a blue faery, Hamster, Cat, Hedgehog, and the Queen of the Faeries, Sam and Henry discover that they can ask the faeries questions about what they really want to know, such as, how to pull things out of thin air! And how to disappear!
