Abstract:

"Garton the Ghastly, the goblin king, is furious with the fairies for foiling his wicked plans for diamond mines and central heating, and plots revenge. Using the stolen Plant Spell Book, and a stolen wand from a flower fairy, he makes a spell to cause all the fairies to lose their voices. Garton is also creating problems for the triggles, small furry creatures who eat mud and live under the Glittering Plains. They dig up pieces of stones and gems to make the plains glitter, but Garton, greedy as ever, has decided the jewels would be better off in his possession. He poisons the plains and tricks the triggles into thinking it was the fairies, and convinces them to give him all the jewels. The triggles, who swell and explode when they are frightened, shower the flower fairies with mud. The bedraggled flower fairies need the fairies help, but their voices are lost so they cant communicate! Cedar knows a spell that will restore their voices, involving a rare purple rose that can be found on a sapphire. Sadly, because the triggles are giving Garton all the jewels, there are hardly any sapphires left, but luckily, right on the edge of the Glittering Plains, Cedar spies one last glittering gem and a deep purple rose the potion is made and the fairies voices return. With the flower fairies help, Astara and Cedar gather flowers to make a potion that will counteract Gartons magic. The triggles are appalled when they discover they have been tricked by goblin lies and deceit, and march on the goblin caves, on the pretense they are bringing them treasures. They suddenly explode and the terrified goblins are buried in mud the stolen treasures are then returned to their rightful owners."--Provided by publisher.
