When Princess Gemdelovely and Assipattle meet and get to know each other, they decide to set off armed with the king’s sword to get rid of the Dragon Stoorworm. But can they do what many warriors before them have failed to do? Can this adventurous and courageous princess and her young man find a way to defeat such a fearsome dragon? And if they do what will happen to the dragon? Will Princess Gemdelovely and Assipattle live happily together in Scotland?
