Description

George, the hero from M. P. Robertson's The Egg, has returned in this brand new dragon adventure. George is bored. When it comes to fighting, chickens aren't nearly as much fun as dragons. But when George's dragon returns, he whisks him off to a fairytale land on a rescue mission. A wicked witch has captured a baby dragon and George realises that he must outwit the witch in order to free the dragon and prevent himself from being turned into a toad for the witch's barbecue.
