It’s bedtime in the land of ice and snow.
"Night, night,” says Bib’s mummy.
“Sleep tight,” says Bib’s daddy.
But Bib has a better plan.
“Please,” says Bib, “can I have a story? The one about dragons.”
And so begins the heartwarming tale of a dragon in need of an egg and an abandoned egg in need of a mummy. It seems like the perfect fit, but what happens when that egg hatches and the little baby doesn’t look like all the other dragons (in fact, he looks remarkably like a penguin)? Of course, his mummy loves him no matter what. But the other babies aren't so sure.
Little do they know that being different can be good and soon their little feathered friend is saving the day.
