Young John McGowan travels to Scotland to live at his grandfather's castle after he loses his parents in a traffic accident. At the wishing tree he conjures up a dragon friend, Yowler. They grow up together, and one day documentary film maker Bob Armstrong and his daughter Beth stumble upon Yowler. Hungry for fame (and money), Bob convinces John to "rent" Yowler to local unscrupulous businessman Lester McIntyre. John is convinced in part by the offer to have the outstanding taxes on the castle paid off, partly because of his growing interest in Beth. Yowler is miserable in the new theme park built for him, and when it becomes clear that McIntyre has tricked them in order to exploit the dragon, John and his new friends take action. Written by

This is a great movie for "family night". No violence, harsh language or situations. It's the basic Good vs. Evil type movie. Children of all ages will enjoy this movie, but I believe that children between 2 and 8 will enjoy it most. My son was 1 yr. old the first time he saw the movie and he really enjoyed it. Boy finds a baby dragon and they grow up together to adulthood. Adults may find this movie a bit 'sappy' but the kids will really enjoy it. If you tear up easily, take out your hanky's... there is a slightly sad scene toward the end of the movie. This is one of those movies that younger children will want to watch over and over again.
