Short Summary (German)

Die Eltern schicken ihr Drachenkind zum Großvater, weil es unterentwickelt ist und er die besten Suppen zu kochen vermag. Dort soll es sich herausfuttern. Doch die Hexe Krakelia hat dem Opa den Kessel gestohlen. Großvater und Enkel tun sich zusammen, um die Alte zu überlisten. Dabei entwickelt der kleine Drachen beachtliche Talente, die ihm Anerkennung einbringen.
