A funny, magical story about family and imagination from Patricia Forde for Egmont's Blue Banana series.
Natalie's sister Lola has locked herself in the bathroom and is refusing to come out.
It's not her fault - there's a witch in there, keeping her prisoner, and a sleeping dragon called Fizz, who Lola doesn't want to wake up. When the witch gets cross and conjures up lots of frogs, things get a little heated - because frogs do not like dragons!
If the police, the firemen, a plumber, and Lola's family can't get her out of the bathroom, what will?
