Old Redcap, an inventor elf, is proud of his greatest creation—a hot-air balloon with wings for steering. One day, Bluecap, a young elf, comes rushing through the woods. A fox has nibbled at the ropes that keep the balloon from floating away! Redcap and Bluecap grab a rope but cannot keep the balloon from rising into the sky—with the two elves still attached.
Eventually darkness falls, along with the balloon. When they awake the next morning, they find themselves in the land of the fairies, They have become stuck on rocks that are not rocks at all, but turn out to be a sleeping dragon.
Their adventure has only begun.
