In the Enchanted Village, “The Magic Roundabout” lies in ruin, encased in ice. It is the work of the evil ice sorcerer Zeebad, who is on the loose from his prison beneath the ground: his mission is to enslave the earth and freeze it over forever. As a frosty mist sweeps the world, ranged against the magician are four unlikely heroes: Brian, a snail; Ermintrude, a cow; Dylan, a rabbit; and Dougal, a dog. Only by capturing three magic diamonds they can reverse the winter and return Zeebad to his prison. So begins a desperate race against time. The heroes must survive across the furnaces of a fiery volcano, through the hidden dangers of a temple, over the snow-capped mountains of the icy wilderness. Can our heroes prevail against seemingly unassailable odds with their teamwork, friendship and fearlessness?
