As a celebrating crowd rings in the Chinese New Year, Scooby gets in the middle of a freaky kidnapping!
Plot: A pair of mysteries featuring Rooby-Rooby-Roooooo!
In a departure from formula, Robbie Busch raises the scales for the first mystery in which the gang must foil a pretty decent dragon costume. Obviously if Joe Staton's drawing it, it will be masterful, but the dragon actually, within the context of the story could be considered frightening.
The means by which the gang discover the dragon's lair amusingly depends upon Scooby's stomach, and the identity of the dragon comes as a complete surprise. Though the solution will not seem fairplay at first, the dialogue indicates indeed a means through which the reader could have deduced the person beneath the latex.
