The fact that a group of creepy strangers then chases the children and their unusual pet doesn’t exactly diminish the problems. Now the only solution is a secret trip to La Dragonera, the dragon island. And that’s where the real adventure begins for Clem, Bahira and the creature from another time ...

Here, chaos reigns supreme: Hakim moves Mrs. Meier’s car, sinking it in the school pond. Ewald drills a secret hole in the wall to the teachers’ lounge during the big break – with fatal consequences for the teachers! In this class, things rarely go as planned – and in the end, they are thick as thieves. So it’s only logical that they would even do a dangerous experiment …
