Open your eyes wide and listen carefully. Is that a roar we can hear? He’s there! Who?

With his shiny scales, immense wings spread wide, paws armed with claws and sulphur-smelling breath… Good heavens, of course: it is a dragon! This dragon that is the stuff of dreams for Carmencita, a young bohemian smitten with curiosity and freedom. On his back, she could fly over lands as far as the eye can see and experience so many adventures. But to do that, she will have to start by getting past the towns ramparts… which is no easy task! Who could help her? José Drac, the world’s most famous defender of dragons, or Camillo, the fearless dragon tamer?
