The Princess and the Plumber

When a brave princess vows to rescue her kidnapped sister, she finds an unlikely and reluctant ally - a stocky bald plumber named Gus! Joined by a magical monster, a giant caterpillar and a host of weird and wacky characters, our heroes face peril at every turn.

Will good triumph over evil? Or is this one of those stories WITHOUT a happy ending? (Geez, I hope not! I HATE those kind of stories!)
