Lovabye Dragon

In her bed in her room in her castle, a girl longs for a dragon. In his nest in his cave in his mountain, a dragon dreams of a girl....

When a lonely dragon follows a trail of princess tears, a beautiful friendship is born. They march and sing, roar and whisper, hide and seek, then settle into snug companionship at bedtime. After all, there’s no better nighttime companion than a lovabye dragon.

This charming story of forever friends is accented with beautiful, soft, fairy tale inspired artwork, with clever hints that a little girl's imagination may have helped unite the two friends. Barbara Joosse's fiercely protective and gently loving dragon cavorts across the pages, endearingly illustrated by Randy Cecil. With its soothing, lyrical text, it's the perfect bedtime story to remind kids that dreams can come true in unexpected ways.

"The fairy-tale setting, lilting repetitive verses, and whimsical characters are wonderfully done. Oil paintings, using a blue, gray, and gold palette, suggest that a toy dragon and three shiny soldiers with swords drawn have come to life, giving an added dimension to the text. This satisfying tale of two forever friends is both a comforting bedtime story and affirmation that sometimes dreams do come true." — Mary Jean Smith, School Library Journal
