When Jack's father discovers a fire-breathing dragon living close to home, Jack tells everyone not to worry — he has read a lot about dragons. The next day, Jack meets the dragon and learns that he is a poet who would rather write than fight knights and breathe fire. Soon Jack and the dragon are sharing poetry and singing songs, but Jack can't keep him a secret for long. One day, Saint George rides into town to slay the beast, but the dragon refuses to take part in something so uncivilized. So with the help of Jack, they agree to stage a mock battle, which pleases everyone involved.
