There is a catch; the tree is guarded by ferocious goblins (embodiments of destructive emotions and attitudes) that need to be tamed, not killed, by special gizmos (virtues). On her journey that turns into a spiritual odyssey Magda tries to fulfill her mission by mastering the gizmos and taming the goblins in far and exotic places, in encounters with strangers, in peculiar circumstances, exceptional surroundings, in celestial spheres and mystifying tales, until her quest takes her finally to a place where everything is possible – the fourth dimension. Her decade-long treasure hunt is set against the backdrop of a dozen countries around the world. On her quest she is confronted with all kinds of setbacks, testing her resolve; falls into the hands of goblins and is often challenged, constrained and put in extremely difficult situations, where she needs to be resourceful in finding solutions. With her multiple personalities, using her imagination and intuition, believing everything is possible and paying much attention to the world around her, which serve as omens guiding her towards her goal, young Magda becomes a high-flyer in her own right, spinning unfavorable circumstances into riches.

The story has a universal appeal that transcends all cultural and gender barriers. It has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of unconventional wisdom, self-empowerment, and guidelines how to make everything possible.
Readers are given a front seat at an encounter with forces that shape our lives, and are encouraged to look outside their own culture, taken to a spectacular array of different realms, often to be challenged by the same questions on race, sex, education, religion and other issues that perplex the world we live in. The novel appeals especially to young people, who don’t like to study, since the book presents a young person's struggle to break from the confines of conformity and to pursue her dreams on her own terms. It appeals especially to girls and young women, because they can relate to the main female protagonist. It also appeals to all the people who love traveling, since this story is a travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery.
