Sharif and his two young boys decide to have an afternoon exploring the lightly wooded countryside. Bright sunshine and fresh air, perhaps a light picnic in the sunny woods and a father telling his sons tales of adventures and adventurers of days long past; this is about all the excitement a middle aged scribe and historian could wish for, or stand. But what happens when he and his little ones are magically transported to the dangerous Dark wood? Can a lowly academic prevent his two sons from becoming part of a three course meal for the mystical and ravenous beasts who live there!?!
