Here begins a tale of Eliza, who wants to become a swashbuckling hero, and Lavender, who dreams of being a fairy-tale princess.

Unfortunately, this giant loves dolls' houses and isn't letting her new toys out of her sight. Can Eliza and Lavender come up with a cunning plan to escape?
Where have all the gentle giants gone?
Is the Holy Snail really magical?
How many socks can their goat, Gertrude, actually eat?
And what's for dinner?
