Description
Friends come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Sometimes they re even dragons.

Roger loves adventure. Today he's playing pirate, sailing the high seas, dancing to the hornpipe, and catching fish. But the wind's blown him off course and he's . . . well . . . lost.
When Padraig, a kitten-sized, bug-eating dragon, encounters the lost turtle, he offers to help Roger find his way home. Roger's directions take some time to follow his house "looks" brown, "sounds" like singing, "smells" like baking, "feels" like sand, and "tastes" like strawberries and along the way, Roger and Padraig become friends. And friendship always yields unexpected rewards. Like cookies.
