Late one night Alice Creighton hears her father having an argument with a fairy - a snarling, bald beast with warts and needle-like teeth.
The next day her father disappears, never to return. And Alice is sent to live with Master Geryon, an uncle she never even knew existed.
Geryon has a dark, mysterious library which is strictly off-limits to Alice.
But after meeting a talking cat who is willing to sneak her in, Alice opens a book and suddenly finds herself inside it - and the only way out is by conquering the dangerous creatures within...
