Lost in the Great Storm is a compelling tale of friendship where goodness and grace meet the dark side of the forest:
"Curiosity brings Princess Raena to a large tree in the forest. A storm with torrential rains prevents her from going home. It carries Raena to the dark side of the forest, where she meets two nasty creatures, Haggis and Trodge. Raena isn’t sure how she’s going to get out of this mess, but she is able to befriend a praying mantis and glow worm that help her. A sneaky spider has learned Raena’s secret – that she is a princess – and Raena must make sure that Haggis doesn’t learn this secret. Will Raena escape from Haggis, the horrible hag and Trodge, the terrible troll?"
