AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Young Riley dreams about a strong and beautiful sleeping dragon. When he wakes and shares his dream with his mother, she tells him that there is a sleeping dragon in China that is believed to be 2000 years old. Plush panda in arms and ready for adventure, Riley sets off in his red plane to find this amazing sleeping dragon. He journeys all over Beijing looking, but it is not until he is almost ready to give up and return home that the dragon reveals itself.'
