“And they all lived happily ever after.”

At least, that’s what Jill’s storybook says, but Jill can’t help noticing that at the end of the story, one character looks far from happy. Dragon is despised by the king because all he can do is singe, burn, and barbecue. So Jill decides to make her fairy tale ring true and invites Dragon out of the book, so she can teach him some alternative life skills!

Dragon throws himself into all of Jill’s favorite things—but with disappointing results. When it seems as if all hope is lost, Jill and Dragon discover that he has one very unique, and palatable, talent . . .
