In a tiny, isolated kingdom long ago and far away, everyone believed that the world beyond was infested with fearsome, fire-breathing dragons and no one dared venture forth. No one, that is, except William, fourth (and wisest) advisor to the king, whose bravery would change forever the course of events in the little kingdom. The princess' birthday party promised to be a gala affair. The great dining hall of the palace resounded with music. There was dancing and wine and big platters of food. There was everything that a person could possibly want at a birthday party. Except for fireworks, that is. Or a fire-breathing dragon. Illustrated with 6 full-page color illustrations as well as a full color wrap-around cover by Vaughn Bode.
