When all the holidays on calendars in San Francisco go missing, Rusty the Red-Bearded Pirate promises the mayor he will find the dragon who stole them and bring them back.
Do you believe in dragons? Neither did the mayor of San Francisco until Rusty the Red-Bearded Pirate found the one who stole the calendar dates of all the holidays. Rusty is aided by First Mate who is rather short in courage and never has a good idea, Mrs. Crowe, a big black bird who stays in the crow's nest and feels useless, and Cook who makes the best soup in the whole world but still feels unimportant. They sail to Hong Kong and Shanghai, then past Japan, Korea, and Russia, at last finding the cave of the dragon in a very cold place. The Dragon has a logical explanation of why she stole the holiday dates, but our friends must get them back so they can return to San Francisco, For once, First Mate has a good idea, Mrs. Crowe uses her artistic skills, and Cook realizes that soup is very important. The e-book also explains to kids how to make their own papier-mache dragon, and there's a preview of the next Rusty the Red-Bearded Pirate book.
