Bartholomew the dragon is brought to Monster Hospital by his fierce aunty Madge. He's got a terrible case of smoke inhalation because he can't breathe fire - and he can't fly either!

Maybe they can, if there's a princess involved ...This book follows the first Monster Hospital adventure: THE BIG, FAT, SMELLY OGRE and is written and illustrated by the acclaimed author illustrator of the THORA books.
