From front flap: "Every Midsummer's Eve all the fairy folk gather to dance and dine until dawn and watch as the Fairy Queen gives her annual precious gift to a child in need. But this summer the Fairy Queen's magical silver shoes have disappeared, and without them she is powerless. Why would anyone take them? Will they be recovered in time?"
