Halloween night, the wayward Sadie leads her friends past cardboard cut-outs of the painter Mistral and a lady at the leaf-covered house on Windward Road. A mural transports them to an enchanted star where their costumes become real.
As Fortuneteller, Sadie only has to look in her crystal ball to help the others with their transformations. Her friend Candy is the Homecoming Queen and her brother has turned into a zebra. That begins the adventures of Sadie and the enchanted children who make up the bizarre star community.
Then Mistral's woman friend finds that her star-of-sapphire necklace is missing. The winner of this treasure hunt is granted a boon from Enchanter Mistral. But other wishes have to be discovered.
