Stanley, a young dragon, has run away from home

He feels that he is a failure, and as dragons go, he probably is

He's kind, soft spoken, and a good friend

But he can't, for the life of him, breathe FIRE!

So he needs the help of his friends ...

A lady bug named Persnickety is Stanley's best friend and side kick

Emma is an earthling girl who lives on a farm and plays in the nearby forest with her magical friends

The loveable villain is a raven named City Slick, the Third

Thomas, the pedantic sea turtle, expresses himself in colorful seafaring lingo

Queen Cleo, queen of all the fairies

And there's Cheets, the effervescent elf

One dark night Slick lures Stanley away from the forest and sells him to the circus

He's left chained, alone in a tent, until such time that he can breathe fire

The Queen of the Faeries gives Donald and Emma a quest - find Stanley and rescue him!

While this is an adventure story full of laughter and quirky characters, it also teaches children that no matter what, it is never a good idea to run away from home and is frequently very dangerous

The fable addresses bigotry, greed, loyalty and kindness to others

Extras can be included for a Large Mixed Cast
