For Arty to miss a day of school, either he is very, very sick or a fairytale-character turf-war has begun in his backyard. So begins this particular Wednesday.
First, Arty finds a sweaty, bearded ax-swinging warrior Dwarf scaring his dogs. Soon enough, Emma, Cry, and other middle-school friends also find fairy creatures-Elves, Spriggans, Pixies, and a hoped-for Dragon-crashing into their normal homework-doing, backpack-carrying, phone-charging schooldays.
Why are these magical beings here? What should be done? Is that ax sharp? Can Pixies be given aspirin? Arty, with his friends-and spying jerks and questionable strangers with long names-follow the clues and try to find out, even as things turn dark and dangerous. The mythical beings take sides. The Gwyllion, that legendary Old Woman of the Mountains, has a sinister plan that will turn the neighborhood into a fantasy battleground.
