Synopsis

The Dragon Festival by An Vrombaut

Princess Florrie and Dear Dragon appear again in another exciting adventure - jam packed full of dragons with an endearing message of friendship and acceptance. There's a Dragoneering Competition at the castle and Princess Florrie thinks Dear Dragon should enter, but he's not sure that blowing bubbles is really a very dragoneering kind of skill!
