Max loves story time at the library. One day he spots a large speckled egg on a bookshelf. No one believes Max when he says a dragon has emerged and is now growing up in the library. Young readers will learn about book care as they follow the dragon's antics.
From the Inside Flap:
"Dianne serves up another hot time as she weaves a tale that sends readers into the 'stacks' to meet a dragon. Complete with rhythmic, rhyming refrains, the story is sure to grab the crowd from the top; the twist at the end seals it! This dragon tale has all the elements to make it a modern classic and a storytelling staple."
--Stephanie Bange, storyteller, children's librarian, and director, Charles and Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center, Wright State University
"Dianne de Las Casas does it again with another book that's a joy to read out loud even though it gave me the shivers. A library dragon devouring all my favorite books is the scariest thing I can imagine!"
--Eric Kimmel, author, Caldecott Honor Book Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
"A fantastic tale full of fun and spirit . . . a book truly worthy of classic status for generations to come."
-Feathered Quill Book Reviews
Max loves story time at the library. But he has no idea how exciting the library can be until the day he spies a large, speckled egg sitting on one of the bookshelves. With a loud crack, the egg breaks to reveal a small, seemingly harmless dragon. However, the dragon has a real appetite for books and doesn't stay small for very long.
Max is the only one who can see the dragon munching and crunching on the library's books. Will anyone believe his story before it's too late? Fresh, bright illustrations and Max's "Book Care Tips" complete this fanciful adventure.
