High on a moun­tain live 100 mighty drag­ons all named Broc­coli. When a tremen­dous wind blows half the drag­ons away, ten oth­ers sail off to become pro­fes­sion­al surfers in Hawaii. The old­est and youngest drag­ons take a train to New York City to start their own heavy met­al band. And a mys­te­ri­ous wiz­ard turns four more into a uni­corn, a were­wolf, a zom­bie, and a tiny pink poo­dle. Now how many drag­ons are left? Read­ers will delight in fol­low­ing each and every drag­on as they leave their home for mar­velous adven­tures, until there is but one drag­on remain­ing. That’s when this final drag­on named Broc­coli retreats to a cave for the win­ter and reap­pears in the spring with a sur­prise that will thrill and delight!

Reviews

“Cho’s col­or­ful por­tray­als offer comedic mag­ic and flair. Read­ers will be cap­ti­vat­ed by the antics of each Broc­coli, [and the drag­ons’] quirky expres­sions will elic­it plen­ty of gig­gles. … This is one enter­tain­ing and sil­ly way to do math.” (Kirkus Reviews)
