Sally's class is hatching baby chicks. Sally's egg looks different and hatches differently. It is a dragon, but the word is not mentioned in the book. Sally's teacher tells her not to be difficult whenever she complains. When Argus, Sally's "chick", escapes, she thinks it would be good because he would no longer try to eat students or the other chicks, but she really has become attached to him. Soon, the teacher and the other students are helping Sally look for him and all ends well.
A lot of words on each page and school situations make the book best suited for lower elementary students. The pictures are excellent and make the book great overall.
