A handsome but spoiled prince, feeling that his royal life is dull, decides to challenge himself by hunting the monstrous chimera. On his journey, his rudeness and arrogance offend a faery, who turns him into a hound dog as punishment. Afterward, the gentle kindness of a poor goat girl named Eliza transforms the prince's heart. When the chimera threatens Eliza, the dog prince fights to save her -- and discovers that she can save him, too.

The husband-and-wife collaborators behind Fairy Wings and The Rag Coat begin their tale with a prince "bored by his devoted people, bored by his elegant castle, bored by his perfect garden, his fancy meals, his royal clothes."
