That was a rhetorical question. Of course you do. Join nerdy magician Cucumber and his feisty knight-in-training little sister, Almond, as they set out to retrieve the Dream Sword, the only weapon powerful enough to defeat Evil Queen Cordelia's Nightmare Knight. But a legendary hero's journey can never be smooth! Available in Softcover and Hardcover editions.
