It's a time of rejoicing at Homeward, the Labyrinthine castle-city that is as magical as oz. and as jam-packed with wonders as Willy Wonka’s chocolate manufacturing facility. Uncle, the clever, style, beneficiant, and fabulously wealthy elephant who ideas over Homeward, has joined along with his many pals to have a good time their overcome the ruffians in neighboring Badfort.
Still, there’s lots of cleansing as much as do in Homeward: the waterworks are tainted with vinegar, housing is scarce, and the Dwarftown Railway is extremely overcrowded— in the meantime the Badfort crowd has devised its so much diabolical plan but. Uncle will want the entire aid he can get from his devoted assistant outdated Monkey and from Goodman the literate cat—and potentially a wizard’s spell—to get via this mess.
