Horace's Dad has silver wings and a green and orange tail. His mum hasn't been able to cast a spell right yet, and his sister Grub - the Fayre Elayne - invents weird things like a box that can take instant pictures. At King Arthur's School for Knights the nasty Sir Sneazle has given Horace the worst assignment of all. Why couldn't Horace be asked to rescue a damsel in distress instead off Pimply Pol, Bran and Snidge, or write an essay on the broadsword instead of Bernard. Anything but kill a dragon! How will Horace and his friends manage? Will the Fayre Elayne come to the rescue with one of her inventions? And will Horace finally discover the truth about his family that will save Dad and Camelot?
