Chocou and Dellon enter magical worlds



It began long before Chocou Deumovo (from the Portuguese for ‘Hatched From An Egg’) came into the world, when Gloria MacDonald introduced her best friend, Tatiana, to her brother, Kilroy.

The two invincible teenagers were going to save the world.

Kilroy shot someone dead, Tatiana, tearful and distraught, stormed out.


She met an artist, Joe Driblock.

Tatiana and Kilroy save the world


NINE YEARS LATER Joe and his pregnant wife Tatiana took their three children to visit the mother of their Norwegian au-pair, Solveig.

Kilroy was there.

Kilroy shot Tatiana and her children.

Four dragon-like shapes swept into the stormy sky.

Gloria had given Tatiana a bangle imbued with magical powers.

All Things Are Possible

Tatiana and her children had been sent to the Land Of Legend And Mythology as dragons.

Joe became a taciturn recluse, instead of teaching he drove the school bus.
The school gave him rooms.

Solveig became a nun and lived with her Portuguese friend Mother Florinda.

Together they brought up a boy who came to them in mysterious circumstances: as Joe knelt in the rain Solveig, panicked and confused, ran to the trees where she met Florinda. They found a huge egg, Tatiana’s unborn child.

It hatched and ‘Chocou’ became their adopted son.

Fourteen years old, Chocou awoke in tears, wings had burst from his back.

He bandaged them down and went to school in the old bus. At the wheel was Joe ‘Grumpyman’ Driblock. His radio announced that Kilroy MacDonald was to be executed.

That night, after a secret initiation, Kilroy’s father was granted one wish. He asked that his son be exonerated.

Kilroy was declared innocent of all charges.

Joe was livid.

A classmate showed Dellon his exquisite flick-knife, as Dellon held it it was confiscated.

Chocou and Dellon sneaked into their school to retrieve the knife at the same time as Kilroy and his henchmen sneaked in to kidnap the witness to Tatiana’s murder, Joe.

Chased by the gang, Chocou and Dellon plunged into the bushes and emerged in ‘Aurendaria’, The Land Of Legend And Mythology.

Chocou rescued a dragon and met Goldilocks, Tatiana in dragon form.

Dellon returned to the school and, along with Joe, was kidnapped.

Kilroy had made a program that scrambled bank accounts world-wide, he planned to be ‘The Saviour’ by restoring them to normal but the ‘undo’ disc was in Chocou’s satchel.

A dragon played with Chocou, he slipped, fell into the lake and emerged in the school grounds.

Kilroy held the school hostage but Chocou’s satchel was in Aurendaria.

Kilroy threatened Chocou with a gun, Joe ‘Grumpyman’ said, “Chocou, go!”.

Chocou became part-dragon, belched and vanished in a puff of smoke.

He emerged beside his satchel but also among Bulltip Guard Dragons.

Chocou was taken to the Dragon King’s cavern where Goldilocks, her children and her friends were prisoners.

Goblins put Chocou in a cell.

Kilroy pushed a gun into Dellon’s ribs and demanded he lead him and his gang to Chocou.

The school corridor meandered strangely until Dellon found himself in passages deep inside the Dragon King’s cavern.

Joe Grumpyman struck the back of school stage, it opened to reveal the cavern packed with every kind of dragon.

A dragon flew into the hall, gave Grumpyman a kiss and transformed into Ediva, his eldest daughter.

Kilroy’s gun put paid to dragons and goblins but he also shot Princess Vinesse who had been taken along with Goldilocks.

Disgusted, Kilroy’s men threw down their guns and deserted him.

Dellon turned a gun on Kilroy and marched him to the school stage, Chocou followed.

Knights entered the cavern to rescue the captured princesses whom Goldilocks had saved over the past fourteen years.

The knights seized Chocou for freeing their captured dragons and scorching a knight’s face.

Dragons flew through the school hall and added to the mayhem caused by scrambled bank accounts.

Chocou faced execution as a demon.

Kilroy the captive faced Joe Grumpyman, Gloria and the school. He reached for the ‘Undo’ disc but Chocou was gone.

Two friendly dragons, Seaweed and Bonfire, went to rescue Chocou, crossbowmen shot them with the discarded guns.

The opening to the cavern closed up.

Chocou’s classmate Angela found her way into the cavern, revived Seaweed and Bonfire and flew to the castle.

The axe was about to come down when Angela called on the knights to save our world.

Kilroy was cast to his doom by Gloria. He plunged into the cavern in time to rescue Goldilocks from a Bulltip Guard dragon.

Goldilocks transformed back into Tatiana.

Angela and Chocou led the knights into the school grounds where rioters blamed the school for the mayhem.

Tatiana, wounded, was carried onto the school stage.

Chocou revealed the identity of the wise writer-artist-sculptor van Goeden: Joe.

Tatiana and Joe told Chocou he was their son, Chocou fled to Aurendaria.

Angela followed him.

They watched the knights lead the school to Nandanavana, ‘Paradise City’.

Princess Vinesse was brought back to life by the tears of the Firebird.

The undo disc was retrieved and the accounts restored.

The dragons were transformed into birds, Kilroy purged of his murderous ways.

Dellon led Kilroy’s henchmen, “guns are for sissies,” he said.

Chocou, Dellon and Angela were helped by three sprites, Zapparelli, Liquililly and Quickittytix.
