Max and Emmy aren't sure how they feel about their new home until they discover the playroom with dragon wallpaper - and a secret drawer! Inside is a shiny dragon scale, and a poem whose words transport them magically to Dragon Land. Young dragons Ord and Cassie have never met children and are amazed that they can't fly. Max is a little nervous at first, but soon he and Emmy fly on Ord's and Cassie' s backs to see this wondrous new place, meet the two-headed dragon Zak and Wheezie, and learn from Quetzal, the teacher in the School in the Sky, how to return home and visit again. In "Forest of Darkness," Quetzal opens his Big Storybook and gives Ord a very special assignment -- to locate the Star Tree in the Forest of Darkness and bring back one of its Star Seeds. There's only one problem: Ord is afraid of the dark! With a little help from his friends, Ord learns some creative new ways to cope with his fear.
