When Henry finds a mysterious map in the desk drawer of the queen’s dollhouse, he runs to show his discovery to his cousin Jeremy. But the two are spotted in the kitchen, whisked into a bowl, and driven away to a park, where they are set free. With the help of the map they set off on an adventure that involves sailing, flying, and learning about the wide world outside of Windsor Castle.
