From the Publisher:

If Howard Morton and Freddie the Frog Killer were trying to hold you down so that Mary Lou Hutton could kiss you, you might run as fast as Jeremy Thatcher did the day he stumbled into Mr. Elives' Magic Shop.

And if you stumbled into that strange shop, you, too, might be asked to make a choice. What would you buy? The Chinese rings? The Skull of Truth? Or the dragon's egg?

And if you did buy the dragon's egg, what would you do when you found out you were supposed to hatch it?

From the Inside Flap:

Read by the author and the Words Take Wing TM Repertory Co.
Two cassettes / approx. 2 hours 30 mins.

"To quicken the egg, take it outside at midnight on the night of the next full moon.  Lift it to the moonlight and wisper:

Full moon's light to wake the egg
Full moon's light to hatch it;
Midsummer Night will crack the world,
But St. John's day will patch it."

When Jeremy Thatcher follows the strange instructions given to him by the weird old man who runs Elives' Magic Shop, he finds himself raising a tiny, mischief-loving dragon names Tiamat.  But as Jeremy soon learns, even a tiny dragon can mean big trouble.

And Tiamat isn't going to stay tiny for long...

Here is a tale filled with laughter, and a few tears, that will make your heart take wing.
