About this title
It was an unusual Eleven Day morning... “What was it that appeared after midnight on an Eleven-Day morning, landing without a sound onto the soft desert sand outside the sleepy village? And what made Toby awaken and look out of his window on that starlit night? No one in the village ever wakes up before 11:00am on an Eleven Day. No one!" Follow the adventures of Toby, Ben and Rosie as they sneak quietly into the night and encounter a golden wonder. Wrestle with the frightening Wild Winds, slip down a glassy slide, hide under a magic umbrella, help a dragon undo his sister’s mistake, and dive deep below the ocean waters to meet an old, old friend. Will the villagers discover that the children have broken the Eleven-Day rule? Or will someone, or some Thing, help the young adventurers to make it back home before the Eleven-Day bells chime? If you love magical mystery and marvelous adventure you are sure to love GoldDust, Dragon of Merak.

A writer for over 25 years, Alicja has recently begun publishing some of her most cherished work. In her youth, the small town of Larder Lake in Northern Ontario was where her family called home.
