Kendra and Seth Sorenson are sent off by their parents to Grandma and Grandpa Sorenson's house for a couple of weeks while their parents go on a cruise set up by Grandma and Grandpa Larsen for their children and spouses after they died. When they get to the house, Grandpa Sorenson tells them that their grandmother is visiting their dying Great Aunt Eda and introduces them to Lena, the housekeeper, and Dale, who helps Grandpa Sorenson tend to the grounds. Once Seth and Kendra's parents are gone, Grandpa Sorenson sets up two rules, which are that they must keep out of the woods, and that they cannot go in the barn. However, this plot of land is not simply a preserve for endangered animals. Instead it is a protected ground for fairies and other creatures dwell. Instead of a normal house, they got a secret magic world!
