“These stories began as a way to make my children laugh and teach them that they can overcome adversity by working together and problem-solving through creativity. I also wanted them to envision themselves as strong, capable, and compassionate through identifiable characters.”
Iris Wildling and Cael Wildling are Princess and Prince of the kingdom of Weirderland. This is a kingdom filled with magic and adventure, where danger and new friends wait around every corner. These young royals spend their time questing. Going on unexpected adventures helping and finding new friends, saving the kingdom, or simply rescuing a horse. These are the first three adventures of young Prince Cael and Princess Iris. Their first adventure is to recover a flying horse named Ruben that their parents have misplaced in their too-large castle, but the magical castle has more than one surprise behind its many doors. The Prince and Princess‘ second quest comes while they are on holiday at the beach and a mermaid named Undine asks them for help saving her kingdom, but in the sea, there are more dangers than they can imagine. For their third adventure, they are veterans now, but when Terrance, a foxlike Fairy asks them to help recover the missing Fairy Fire, the source of all their magic, the Prince and Princess find themselves in more danger than ever before. Through these quests, the royal siblings are forced to contend with many things they did not believe they were capable of facing. Turning an enemy to a friend, seeing a friend fall, failing, and taking wrong turns. They run toward danger because they never once thought of saying no when someone asks for help.
