That night, when its words become mysteriously clear and Steve begins to read them, she's transported to the topsy-turvy world in the book - Opposite Land. In this extraordinarily peculiar place, roads float in mid-air, people live in giant snail shells and monsters are made of pasta! But all that will change once Emperor Never gets his way and destroys Opposite Land for good. When a flying cabbage called Sanjiv reveals that Steve is the only one who can defeat the emperor, it's up to Steve to face her fears and save the world.
