Logan, Zoe, and Blue will do anything to stop the Menagerie from being shut down, and that means proving to a jury of magical creatures the innocence of Scratch the dragon. Scratch faces the death penalty for killing Pelly, the goose who laid the golden eggs. With the help of Marco, a werechicken in their seventh grade class, the three friends learn that Scratch is guilty of no more than eating a few farmer’s sheep and that Pelly is not dead after all. They find Pelly and bring her back in time to save Scratch, but they are still unsure who set Scratch up to get the Menagerie closed.
