This was the third Suske en Wiske project I translated into English (after The Devilish Demon and Amoras 1), but the first to appear in print. It's not a part of the regular Suske en Wiske series and is not available for purchase. Instead, it was commissioned by the Belgian Antibiotic Policy Coordination Committee in cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment for free distribution in support of European Antibiotic Awareness Day.
In the story, Suske en Wiske (renamed Luke and Lucy for English-language readers by the publisher) travel to far-off Dragon Island in search of the most powerful antibiotic in the world to help out their ailing friend Cooper, and wind up caught in the middle of an ongoing battle between two strange sets of creatures, the Sillies and the Streppies.
