Sir Adam the Brave and the Moody Monsters

When monsters wreak havoc on the magical kingdom of Wompie, the people fear they will have to cancel the Wompie Wonder Fair. All hope seems lost until Sir Adam the Brave sets out to challenge the monsters and restore fun to Wompie. Sir Adam encounters three moody monsters: one sad, one scared, one angry, and all completely misunderstood. He empathises and encourages the monsters to return with him to Wompie, where he convinces the people that the monsters mean no harm and ensures the Wompie Wonder Fair is better than ever.
