When seven year old Nat’s parents inherit eccentric Aunt Eleanor’s house, Nat is disappointed to find that all she’s left him is her collection of old books… and Nat still can’t read. Little does he know that these books are the originals of every fairy story and the real fairytale characters live inside them. When his parents start selling off the books, the tiny heroes are in danger of disappearing forever and they are counting on Nat for protection. The magic inscription in the library will keep them alive, so Nat’s on a quest to battle the storybook ogres and learn to read by midnight to save his new friends.
