Jaxon’s mother has sent him to help a woman she calls Ma, but it turns out she’s not his grandmother; she’s a witch. Soon, Jaxon is helping Ma transport real live dragons to a magical realm where they’ll be safe. According to Ma, there are only two rules when it comes to the dragons: don’t let them out of the bag, and don’t feed them anything sweet. Before he knows it, Jax and his friends Vikram and Kavita have broken both rules. Will Jax get the baby dragons delivered safe and sound? Or will they be lost in Brooklyn forever?
