Wishing Spell Items
“Glass that housed a lonely soul up ‘til midnight’s final toll.
A saber from the deepest sea, meant for a groom’s mortality.
The bark of a basket held in fright while running from a bark with bite.
A stony crown that’s made to share, found deep within a savage lair.
A needle that pierced the lovely skin of a princess with beauty found within.
A wavy lock of golden rope that once was freedom’s only hope.
Glittering jewels whose value increased after preserving the false decreased.
Teardrops of a maiden fairy feeling neither magical nor merry.

They meet Froggy who gives them a journal which will help them find the Wishing Spell Items to go back home
The twins climb Rapunzel's Tower and begin reading the journal to learn about the Wishing Spell items. While in the tower, they find the first item - a lock of Rapunzel's hair.
Malumclaw and his wolf pack meet the Evil Queen, who wishes for them to hunt down the children and bring them back alive. She promises Red Riding Hood in exchange for the twins. The Queen threatens them that she will have them all killed if they do not uphold their end of the bargain.Alex and Conner arrive in the Sleeping Kingdom. The twins learn that both of Cinderella's glass slippers have been marked as stolen, confirming that someone else is collecting for the Wishing Spell. They manage to visit with Sleeping Beauty herself, the ruler of the kingdom, but during their conversation they accidentally reveal their glass slipper, causing a castle-wide panic that is only stopped by Sleeping Beauty. She claims to know of their home world, and says that she was once approached by another who asked her for her spindle to use - the next of the Wishing Spell items. She understands their situation and allows them to borrow it as long as it is returned when they do not need it anymore.

They are kidnapped by a group of Trolls and Goblins from the Troll and Goblin Territories, a place to which they have been kidnapping humans to use as slaves. Conner and Alex are thrown into the dungeons with the rest of the slaves, and notice that the stony "shared crown" of the Troll and Goblin kings matches the description of one of the Wishing Spell items. In the slaves' prison , they find the Traveling Tradesman. With the help of Conner which Trollbella, the princess and daughter of the Troll King is in love with, the twins manage to escape the prison. In the process, they successfully free the rest of the slaves and steal the stone crown of the Kings. The Tradesman sacrifices himself back to the Trolls and Goblins as a distraction to help the twins get away.
The twins run to the Fairy Kingdom, where they meet a crying fairy, Trix, who is being put on trial for using magic to prank another fairy who was teasing her. As she cries they manage to collect a tear from her, that being the next item of the Wishing Spell. They attend her trial and meet the Ruling Council of Fairies, who conduct the trial and wish to have Trix banished from the Fairy Kingdom. Conner comes to her defense, however, and the Council pardons her.
