About this title
Tommo dreamed; Tommo wished, and Tommo believed he could Walk On Air. One day, Takli, Tommo's best friend, made it happen! And for both! She had the power. Takli's Chinese grandfather had left her with the ability to perform wondrous things. Nica, Takli's other best friend, a Chinese whistling duck, taught himself to whistle speak by watching Harpo Marx, of The Marx Brothers. Harpo spoke to his TV brothers in this manner. Tommo and Takli eventually understood every word Nica whistled. When it happened! When the fog surrounded them, Tommo and Takli were walking above a forest of Maples while Nica flew. They felt lost until they saw the golden escalator. Stepping on, they rode it to The Land of Sweet Illusions. This land, made from candy and ice cream, was ruled by King Hagen Das and Queen Bunny Blue. There, the trio met characters from fairy tales and plays: Until-The Sultan of Sour from The Land of Sour tried to overthrow King Hagen. Nica became everyone's hero, wreaking the Sultan's plans and driving him away while all others sat hypnotized. After saving King Hagen's kingdom, Tommo, Takli and Nica left to find the golden escalator that would take them home. Success! But it stopped, OMG in the Land of Sour where everyone and everything was pickley green and mean. There they met two witches, happy Abra and miserable Kadabra. They were then taken by the Cheesed Off Police to the Sultan of Sour. They couldn't leave until they had made all greenies smile and giggle and laugh-an impossibility. But-with the help of Abra and Kadabra and a plan, Tommo, Takli and Nica made 'em laugh and were allowed to go home. Was it an illusion? Was it real? Only Tommo and Takli knew for sure.
