Imagine you were king.
Imagine you could do anything you wanted, except one thing.
You must never ever open The Book of Beasts.

Lionel was just a little boy and he had only been king for twenty four hours. He had been told that he must not open The Book of Beasts, but surely one little peek wouldn’t hurt?  But when Lionel opens the book he accidentally unleashes a wicked red dragon that terrorises his faithful subjects.

Can Lionel save his kingdom from the dragon?
