Olaf has heard rumors of the foreign land of Eldora being in perpetual summer. Is it because the queen has not yet learned how to control her powers? Elsa remembers a time when she was learning to control her powers to diminish the relentless effect of ice and snow on Adelle. The story starts with Elsa helping others by giving books to children, new tools to the ice harvesters, and food and blankets to the stable boys. Does she have something to give Eldora too? Anna suggests that the girls begin the journey in the library, learning about Eldora, prior to setting sail. Sven, Kristoff, and Olaf join the adventurous girls as they venture to strange lands.
