It's a magical age of kings and queens, knights and castles, and royal marriages. For some reason, poor Princess Bella never laughs, that is until she befriends a friendly dragon named Spurlock. Together they'll face Bella's doubtful parents, a snobbish prince, and an evil witch who wants the kingdom and all its treasures for herself.
This light-hearted tale of adventure and mystery will help teach children about friendship, the importance of accepting others, and the idea that courage can take many forms.
