Felix knew he had no choice—he had to go back across The Divide. Snakeweed, the evil japegrin who'd followed him into the real world, had turned his parents into marble statues, and the counterspell to turn them back into humans didn't exist in Felix's world, only in Snakeweed's.

Felix has a lot to do! He has to rescue Betony and Thornbeak from the library, find the king and queen, locate a sorcerer who is willing to help him, get a counterspell for his parents, defeat Snakebread and Fleabane, and last but certainly not least, get back to his own world and stop the chain reaction magic before anyone finds out that it exists.
