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:

"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."
