Grace thinks, after moving to Hong Kong with her mom and new stepdad, that her biggest concern is going to be making friends at her new international boarding school. But when a mysterious old woman gifts her a dragon egg during a field trip, things start to get strange. The egg hatches overnight, revealing a water dragon. Grace needs to figure out how to take care of her new charge as well as keep him a secret. The dragon has immense powers that put them both in danger as mysterious forces are intent on taking and abusing the dragon’s power.

With a spunky hero and cute dragon, this first volume is sure to grab middle school readers and dragon-lovers alike.

Everything seems to be going well as they go on a boat race across Mewmaid Ocean and a hot-air balloon ride over Mount Lava and collect the first two ingredients. But their good fortune seems to run out as they reach the Enchanted Rain Forest to gather enchanted rain water. They must get to the bottom of what’s causing the dry spell to secure the final ingredient! Fans of Catstronauts, Babymouse, and Catwad will enjoy this new series.
