Monty and Nell are due to spend the holidays on their aunt’s farm. What they don’t know is that ‘Dragon Farm’ is a sanctuary for fantastic creatures! Their aunt is a sorceress and the oil paintings dotted around her house are magical portals to another world! The twins also meet the farm’s servant, a frog goblin named Mr. Cucumber. But one of the fantastic creatures on the farm is in grave danger: a little dragon, whose egg has been stolen. The culprit is the terrible Professor Prospero, who is always on the hunt for mythical creatures for his ghastly zoo. Without hesitation Monty and Nell travel into the otherworld through one of the oil paintings. They quickly manage to track down the dragon’s egg in a dark cave. But when they do, Professor Prospero appears, surrounded by his helpers – the hairy grimmlings. The whole thing was a trick to capture the little dragon! A frenzied struggle ensues, but in the end the friends escape and get themselves, and the dragon’s egg, to safety. Monty and Nell have outwitted the professor this time – but there are many more animals that he has his eye on, and they will need the twin’s protection from now on...
