This sequel reunites Warren, Petula, and the entire hotel staff for an all-new adventure. Warren is now Manager of "The World's Only Traveling Hotel," and the hotel walks a regular circuit around their native land of Fauntleroy.

Simply entering the Malwoods would be scary enough! But Warren finds himself ejected from the hotel and stranded in the Malwoods. To recapture the hotel, Warren will have to race through the forest, make some new allies, and solve a host of puzzles. Meanwhile, his friends back at the hotel will wonder why a sinister doppelganger (disguised as Warren) is acting so strangely.
