While the other dragons in the forest of Nogard hunt princesses for dinner, Herb merrily tends to his vegetable garden and leek soup. One day, upon learning the knights are planning a dragon hunt, Herb's carnivorous brethren hide in their caves and he is captured. Locked in the dungeon, Herb faces a difficult choice, should he let other dragons rescue him and, in exchange, become a meat eater or should he stand by his principles and be fed to crocodiles? This hilarious story offers food for thought for all ages!
