At Dr. Woo’s Worm Hospital, Pearl and Ben are greeted with some bad news. A human has been spotted in the Imaginary World! Dr. Woo suspects it might be Maximus Steele — a poacher with his sights set on prized animal horns. What creature will he attack next? Will it be a unicorn?
Together, Pearl, Ben, and Dr. Woo travel to the Tangled Forest. It’s an amazing, colorful, and wild place. Ultimately, the responsibility falls to Pearl to find the lost unicorn. But in a land of fire-breathing insects and flesh-eating flora, is she up for the challenge?
