Each postcard gives Annie and Liam the opportunity to travel to exotic lands and far-flung kingdoms. What the witch doesn't give them are directions on how to safely return.With fan-favorite characters making special appearances from E. D. Baker's beloved Tales of the Frog Princess series, this addition to the Wide-Awake Princess series is not to be missed!
