Prologue-The Book Opens
It is the Festival Of The Stars and Mario, along with his brother Luigi have been invited to meet some of the Mushroom Kingdom's most famous celebrities in Toad Town. Among them is Professor E.Gadd, famed scientist and inventor and Tayce.T, the famous TV chef, author of 'Tayce.T Cooking' and presenter on 'Gourmet In Toad Town', who opened the festival with a short speech. Her speech is cut even shorter when Bowser and a fleet of airships 'politely' invited themselves to the party. Mario battles Bowser, with Toadsworth providing a battle tutorial. Mario wins, but from inside his shell Bowser pulls out a book, which sucks Mario, Peach, E.Gadd and himself inside.
Chapter 1-The Apple Bites Back
Mario lands in a forest clearing. He explores around and is surprised by Spearmint, a toad who lives in the nearby village of Appleville. He does not know who Mario is, referring to him as 'Mr. Mustache'. As a polite act, he escorts Mario along Crunchy Crossroads towards Appleville. Along the way, they fight Goombas, Koopas and Ant Troopers.
