Mostril and his friends thought that the arrival of the half wrecked trading ship in the harbour of their home town of Terpomai would be a brief excitement. Surely, it wouldn't be more important than the annual race around the walls? Stolen necklaces, wrongful arrest and a crafty grandmother proved them wrong. An exciting, fantasy read for anyone over seven. This book is the prequel to the 'Elemental Dragons' series, which includes the 'The Dragon's Tooth', first published in paperback by Praxis.
