When the evil boss The Pitbull finds out, he sends his men to kill the dragon, and to bring him back the body. He also wants a dragon’s egg, so he can hatch in in his private zoo. Flynn and Paddy’s world is about to be turned upside down. Will their bravery and skill be enough to stop the Pitbull’s evil plan?

This book is unlike any other you’ve seen. Of course, it works just like a normal book; you start reading at the beginning, and read it right through to the end. That will work just fine. But you can also download the free ‘AR Reads’ app onto a smartphone or tablet, point it at parts of the book and watch it become reality. Your choice!
