Ben is sent to stay with his grandfather for the summer in Buttonville. Being one of the few children in the little town known for button making, Ben thought his summer was going to be uneventful. That was, until his grandfather’s cat brings home what looks to be a baby bat.
When Ben and Pearl decide to see if Dr. Woo, a worm doctor who took over the abandoned button factory, could help, they learn that the baby bat is actually a baby dragon. They also learn that Dr. Woo doesn’t just look at worms. She is the veterinary to imaginary animals. When Ben doesn’t get the front door locked properly and huge, hairy, stinky beast escapes, he and Pearl are tasked with finding him.
