But when he turns 12, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers.

    September has been crowned queen of Fairyland, but the kingdom is in chaos. The magic of a dodo egg has brought every king, queen, and marquess of Fairyland back to life, all with claims to the throne and their own plots and histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarchical Marathon, in which every would-be ruler will chase the Stoat of Arms across the nation, and the first to seize the poor beast will be crowned.
