This book takes place, "Once upon a time, when people believed in Once upon a time..."
Sighting and wishing upon a shooting star has been around as long as people have longed for wishes to come true. When Hildy sees a shooting star he makes a wish. When the shooting star collides with another shooting star appearing from the opposite direction, they explode and Hildy is dusted with the magical stardust from this event which rarely, rarely rarely occurs, and is seen even less. This stardust gives him the powers to bring to life the stars themselves. In this adventure, Hildy and his two friends, Teddy and Rex must find a way to save the Princess Ana Maria when she is kidnapped by the Ethadians, evil web-footed troll like reptiles who live on the other side of the Kingdom of Revelore.
The boys realize they need help and Hildy calls to life The Archer. The Archer arrives and he commits himself to the boys and their mission. But he explains that his arrows are not effective unless forged in the fire of lightning.
To get that done Hildy conjures forth Pegasus and together they collect the lightning the Archer requires.
After that, it is time to rescue the Princess. Let the battle begin!!!
