After the wily dragon had broken his promise and King Augustus Bonifacius had been insulted by this breaking of a pledge, Giles was summoned to accompany the knights of the land in finding Chrysophylax. Since I listened to it on audio, I'll also note that Derek Jacobi's narration was excellent as always.Near fine in corn-yellow cloth-covered boards with dark blue titles to the spine and front board, with a dark blue line illustration of a dragon to the front board.
