Ten-year-old cousins Jesse and Daisy have always wanted something magical to happen to them. So it's a dream come true when Jesse's newly found thunder egg hatches and a helpless, tiny (but very loud) baby dragon pops out. Jesse names the bright green dragon Emmy, short for Emerald.
Soon the two kids are at Emmy's beck and call, trying to figure out what to feed her. An Internet search leads them to the library and then back to the Internet, where they find a strange Web site called foundadragon.org. Here Jesse and Daisy discover that the little dragon's hatching means that they are now Dragon Keepers, and not only do they have to feed Emmy but they also have to keep her safe from the villainous Saint George, who has kept himself alive over centuries by drinking dragons' blood.
