After all, a dragon from the moon, summoned by the mystical music of the wishing box was unheard-of. Yet, although worlds apart, they shared a common wish; that for a best friend.
Overnight their lives change, but the fun filled days are suddenly disrupted when Speare Morgan hears the music of the wishing box coming from a distant land. More unsettling is the message carried by the mystical music, ‘help me please.’ Someone was in trouble and together they set out to investigate.
The music leads them to the City of Azra. To win his daughter’s freedom, Mubarak, the court’s musician, had finally succeeded in recreating the mystical music as ordered by the sultan.
