After going to Baltimore, Maryland, to stay with their aunt and cousins while their father is in the hospital, Roger and Ann find themselves caught up in a world of adventure! It all started harmlessly enough, with a viewing of Ivanhoe and a brand new toy castle replete with medieval figures. But after falling asleep one night, Roger finds himself shrunken down to the size of his toy knights and back in the olden days of 12th century England. Soon he is mistaken by his toys for a magic elf and becomes something of a nuisance to the Normans and a hero to the Saxons. When he wakes up the next morning, he tells his sister and his cousins all about his adventures. Before long, all four of them are questing together during their nighttime rest in the world Ivanhoe, fighting on the side of Sir Wilfred, Rebecca, and Robin Hood. However, they can only come back once every three nights. A lot seems to change in that course of time, especially when the children have so much playing to do in the daytime. Just building a cityscape out of household items will drastically affect the world of their toys. What could turn Sir Wilfred into a sci-fi nerd? What turn of events could lead to the reformation of so evil a knight as Bois-Guilbert? Join the four children in their comical journeys as they set out to overthrow an evil prince, unite true love, and save a kingdom! Softcover, 212 pages. Written by Edward Eager.
