The Dragon of Doom

About the Story…

Edward is bored with life in the lttle town of Pigbone. Then Moongobble the Magician and his faithful toad, Urk, move into the cottage on the hill.

Soon Edward has a job helping Monngobble. And Moongobble needs a lot of help, because it turns out he is not a very good magician. (His spells keep turning things into cheese!)

Edward has never been so busy—or so happy. But then someone threatens to stop Moongobble from ever casting another spell. Edward can't let that happen. He'll do anything to save his friend's magic—even face the deadly, dreaded Dragon of Doom!

“The story is fast paced, and cliff-hanger endings will keep youngsters turning the pages… Purchase this title for those fans of Harry Potter who need something easier, shorter, and less complicated to read on their own.”—School Library Journal

How can Moongobble, a magician with a good heart but who's not much good at magic, collect the tears without being torn to shreds?

There's only one more Might Task to go and Moongobble will become a member of the Society of Magicians. But this might be the most difficult one of them all. Moongobble must go deep into the Great Forest of Boodle to recover the Queen's Belly Button, a magical stone that was plucked off an ancient statue by a band of elves.
