Dragons, griffins, and BNPs (Bugs of Nightmarish Proportions). Never in their wildest dreams could they have imagined what was in store for them.
After learning they had inherited an enormous mansion and a huge tract of land from a reclusive set of relatives, Steve and Sarah Miller decide to take a few days off to investigate their new-found fortune in the quiet northern Idaho resort town of Coeur d’Alene.
While taking inventory of the vast manor, they discover a unique set of doors on the top floor of their new home. Believing them to be an ornate decoration, the portal (disguised as a simple door) is accidentally activated. Staring at the impossible sight of a lush forest through the active portal, they are presented with a tantalizing decision: check out the impossible or check in to a funny farm. Curiosity getting the better of them, they step through and both are instantly sent on a one-way journey to a land straight out of the fairy tales!
Realizing they were now stranded on a world populated with creatures that should only exist in their imagination, they enlist the aid of the local king and queen. Their troubles continue to escalate, however, as it is revealed their arrival had long been foretold by an ancient local prophecy which bestows upon them the status of Royal Bodyguards to the young crown prince.
Stuck on a foreign world where mythical creatures abound, trying to avoid being attacked by griffins, and hoping to impress a living, breathing dragon, the newly appointed babysitters must find a way to return home soon before harm could befall the young prince.
Some days it didn’t pay to get out of bed.
