At the end of Into the Wild, Julie managed to gain control of the Wild. It's now back under her bed and life is pretty much back to normal. Of course, now her hometown is trying to build up a reputation as Fairy Tale Central. Rapunzel, Julie's mom, is not amused and the push for notoriety has her worried. People don't seem to understand just how dangerous the Wild can be. But then unexpectedly, the Wild spits out Julie's dad. Why did that happen? What is the Wild up to? From official release/information:
From back of book: Ever since twelve-year-old Julie Marchen helped defeat the fairy-tale world of the Wild, life's been pretty much back to normal. That is, as normal as life can be for a girl whose brother is Puss-in-Boots and whose mom is Rapunzel. (Yes, that Rapunzel.)
The Wild is safely back under Julie's bed, but then it suddenly spits out Julie's dad--Rapunzel's prince--and things take a seriously enchanted turn. He's gallant, he's handsome, and he's totally clueless about life in the 21st century. (You try teaching a five-hundred-year-old prince how to text message.) Julie couldn't be happier to have her family back together, but when Dad dashes off to save a kidnapped Sleeping Beauty, Julie must embark on a magical cross-country adventure to bring him home, protect the family secret, and while she's at it, save the world. And if she can't, everyone will spend eternity in a fairy tale.
