Takes place during World War II. A young boy's family changes when his father marries another woman after his mother dies, and they have a baby together. Struggling to get along, and accept his new brother, twelve-year-old David plunges himself into reading. Soon, the lines between fantasy and reality become blurred and he finds himself immersed in a literal story wonderland. Battling wolves, meeting dwarves, and trying to escape the evil clutches of the Crooked Man, David tries to navigate himself back home in a land where all folk and fairy tales take on a more sinister and adult meaning.
The book follows David, a young boy who struggles with his mother's death and his father's remarriage. When a World War II bomber plane crashes into his garden, he finds himself in the fantasy world of his books; he must find the King, who can return him to his home. The novel takes a fresh look at traditional fairy tales, following a child's journey into adulthood.
