In "The Snow Day that went Terribly Wrong", a family of three children gets an unexpected snow day off school.  While playing outside, they inadvertently open a doorway to another world which allows a few unusual visitors to come through.  They quickly cause trouble for the kids who must embark on a quest to help the intruders before the curse on them can be lifted.

A broader theme addressed in the book and alluded to in the dedication is the concept of physical disability and how children deal with it in life.  Each of the children suffers a different disability temporarily and must manage it to successfully navigate their experiences in the story.
