A young boy is suddenly thrust into the role of king!  The country hasn't had a king in a long, long time because the former king had sold all the jewels on the crown to buy books.  The country had saved up for a very long time to buy a new crown and have a new king.  But when the young boy finds the books left by the old king, he is enthralled.  Even though he is warned not to open the Book of Dragons, he does so anyway.  Out rushes a huge dragon who promptly wreaks havoc on the kingdom.  What's the new king to do?
