When the king's away, the weevils (and sloks) will play...
While King Graham and the queen attend a wedding in faraway Cumberford, Princess Rosella plays sick and skips it. After her speedy recovery, she gets to run Daventry, as the highest-ranking royalty in the kingdom. It shouldn't be too difficult—after all, she is almost fifteen.
Rosella begins preparations for the great Harvest Festival, changing time-honored traditions to fit her superior tastes. Ignoring warnings of doom, she has an ugly old tree stump removed from the festival grounds. It's a definite improvement—except for millions of magical weevils that pour out of the ground, eating everything in sight. And the weevils ruin a Piper's spell that was leading a herd of vicious three-toed sloks out of Daventry.
Rosella's at a loss now. Her kingdom is being overrun by magical insects and giant lizards. And she doesn't know what kind of parents could leave a fifteen-year-old princess alone at a time like this...
