AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Deep in the Dark Forest of Faraway Island, a small and wizened pisky named Pinch is up to mischief!

'She has stolen Eden's magical healing cup and poisoned it with the most dreadful fairy potion ever invented - glamour. Glamour disguises the truth. Those who look at glamour are deceived by it. The glamour draws them in, even though it makes them sick, and they are held under its spell. Those who drink glamour, on the other hand, become the deceivers and are turned into something they are not.

'When the ugly Pinch takes a sip of the glamour potion, she becomes extremely beautiful and fresh-faced to anyone who lays eyes on her. Before long, the nasty pisky has the Gnome Mayor, Puck, Blaize and even Lord Foulweather falling madly in love with her, making her the most powerful being on Faraway Island.

I't's up to Eden to retrieve her healing cup and undo the effect of the deceptive glamour.

'And when she does, Pinch will learn a valuable lesson about the true meaning of beauty. ' (Publication summary)
