The old town clock in Scrubbley is broken and fixing it would cost too much. The town council wants to demolish it and replace it with a modern digital piece. Nine-year-old Lucy Pennykettle would just like things to stay normal but her mother Liz actively wants to get the traditional old clock fixed. As Liz normally makes small clay dragons for sale and occasionally dreams small magical dragons into being, she comes up with Gauge, the newest magical Dragon of Wayward Crescent.
