Mr Elives' Magic Shop seems to appear from nowhere - and disappears again just as fast! Never in the same place twice, it sells only the most exclusive wares...A talking toad, anyone? A dragon's egg? There's plenty to choose from...Sheltering from bullies in the Magic Shop, Jeremy is persuaded to buy a dragon's egg by the mysterious Mr Elives. Convinced it's a wind-up, he follows the instructions for a laugh - and suddenly he's got a tiny red dragon sitting on his desk, breathing fire and demanding food. Jeremy tries to hide the dragon, but she's beginning to grow, and she just won't stop...Has he made his problems even bigger?
