"To quicken the egg, take it outside at midnight on the night of the next full moon. Lift it to the moonlight and wisper:
Full moon's light to wake the egg
Full moon's light to hatch it;
Midsummer Night will crack the world,
But St. John's day will patch it."

And Tiamat isn't going to stay tiny for long...
Here is a tale filled with laughter, and a few tears, that will make your heart take wing.
