Fiery dragons, witches, goblins, and wizards don't stop Jessica, a little girl who lives with her mother in the poorest part of a great city, from endless adventuring in the magic of Fairyland and other faraway places.
Join her and enchanting fairyland friends in five thrilling stories. In one she overcomes pirates and ogres to defeat an evil sorceress, and in another defies monster spirits and faces down a wicked witch to free a fairy princess from savage goblins.
Be with her in a lovely fairyland refuge saving long-forgotten toys from a terrible fate, and yet again when in a battle of wits, she defeats an all-powerful wizard to restore a lost dragon child to its mother. Don't miss a final adventure in which, ever undaunted, she braves killer trees, bedouin robbers, and a fearful yeti tyrant to rescue old fairyland friends from imminent peril in the circus of a cruel and merciless clown.
