New episode of our new Castle Charming serial! Part 3: Look at My Shoes

Welcome back to Castle Charming. Winter is upon us, which means the annual tournament of Rookery is underway, a game that pits Royals against Hounds. Meanwhile, fairies steal castle residents away each night, and persons unknown have run up a mysterious bill for far too many dancing shoes. When you live in a fairy tale kingdom, you have to expect to rescue the occasional prince -- but for Kai, Dennis and Ziyi, it's becoming a habit. Can the boys stop pining after each other long enough to step up as heroes?

Part 1: Armour Up

Part 2: The 'Team' in Steam
