This is a mini series for children written within McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series. For those not familiar with Pern, Pern is a planet colonized by humans that is perfect except for one threat: the Thread. The Thread is very harmful to living creatures, including plant life. The residents of Pern are protected by the Dragonriders, who control fire-breathing dragons who destroy Thread (Thread does not do well with fire)

Menolly is a girl living in a fish port. She loves music but is forced to help with gutting fish and one day there is an accident that leaves her hand useless. At one point, she runs away and when seeking shelter from the Thread, she bonds with a group of fire lizards (small cousins of the dragons).
