The Night Dragon

Maud isn't like the other night dragons. She doesn't breathe fire or cast great grey, sooty clouds over the land to bring nightfall. Maud is picked on by the other dragons, so stays cooped up in her cave, sad and lonely. But her friend, Mouse, is sure that Maud has something wonderful to contribute. If she would just dare to take flight, Mouse is sure she would find her own way.

Then one night the other dragons all sleep in, and the day stays light for far too long. With Mouse's encouragement, Maud finally spreads her wings... and something wonderful happens! This beautiful picture book that reads like a folk tale conveys an important message about individuality and friendship.

"Mouse accompanies Maud and cheers her on as she steps off the mountain, flaps her wings, and soars into the sky. She blows clouds of fire, but they are definitely not gray. They fill the sky over city and country with bright colors that allow the sun to set in beauty. Howarth’s watercolor illustrations depict all the dragons colorfully in deep shades of green, blue, and purple, but Maud is seen in all the brightest and most cheerful of hues. The daylight scenery is also varied and colorful, contrasting with the darkness of the dragons’ nighttime activities and making Maud’s efforts even lovelier." — Kirkus Reviews
