This synopsis report prepared by Isle of View
"Perplexed Prince Dolph, Xanth's precocious shapeshifter, should be in love but isn't. Nonetheless, he must choose between two fiancees - Nada the uninterested and Electra the uninteresting - or all three of them will suffer the most dire of consequences. Luckily a convenient catastrophe has popped up to distract Dolph from his dilemma - the foal-napping of young Che Centaur by goblins. And the only one who knows where Che is is a nice but remarkably naive elflike girl named Jenny from the World of Two Moons. If anyone can save the missing centaur... she sure can't!" (descript. on back of book) (World of Two Moons is tie-in to ElfQuest series)
