A continuation of the Tales of Amsteryork, Rudy Rutabaga and the Terrible Dragon of Amsteryork tells the story of Peter Pauper's best friend Rudy, who is now prince of Queen's Island. In the midst of planning a wedding with his fiancée (Gabby Godmother), his parents (having retired from the Rutabaga farm in Ithacuse) inform him that it is high time for him to go on a quest. They arm him with a rather unmagical sword, a jumbled up map and a bit of moxie; Rudy is instructed to seek out and slay the Terrible Dragon of Amsteryork. In true Tuckaberry style, nothing is what it seems, and Rudy finds out that sometimes the quest lies in the journey. Along the way he meets a prince, a king, and two drama queens. More characters, more songs, and an even longer title than its predecessor, Polly Princess and the Penniless Fry Cook make for an unforgettable theatrical experience. The book and lyrics are by Dianna Tucker, with music by Adam Baritot.
