Not every dragon is that hungry.  Not every dragon is mean-spirited or even dangerous. 

Meet Theodore, a dragon, inhabitant of one very dark, very large and very quiet cave.  Theodore is a lover of peace ...and quiet.It's the world around him that creates all the drama and even worse, the noise.  

A parade of macho animals shows up at the mouth of Theodore's world bringing along their tweets and roars and howls all intended for our dragon.   He may not be coming after them but they are surely coming after him.

If you come to this story with expectations, you are about to learn that not every dragon story is about breathing fire and munching on anything that moves.  

It's important that we do not judge a dragon by its reputation.  It's important that we not hold our own fears without getting to know them at least a bit.

Tone:  playful with a hint of suspense

The most important thing is to come out of your cave for the wonder of friendship and the joy of sharing a laugh.

40 pages  Ages 4-8  978-1481429337
