Perfect for readers who’ve finished Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House series but who aren’t quite ready for Harry Potter, this accessible fantasy series is imaginative and adventure-filled!
“Funny and wonderfully written. A tall-tale adventure that will grab readers!” —Mary Pope Osborne, author of the Magic Tree House series
In The Dragon at the North Pole, Dragon Keepers Jesse and Daisy wake on Christmas morning to a winter wonderland—it snowed overnight! Knowing that their dragon, Emmy, has never seen snow before, they hurry to the barn only to discover that she’s disappeared. She’s left a note behind: “Gone to help Santa.” Santa?! Can it be true? With the help of two pairs of magic snowshoes, Jesse and Daisy visit the North Pole to find out!
John Shroades is the illustrator of The Dragon in the Sock Drawer by Kate Klimo. His work has appeared on game box covers and magazine covers and in many games, articles, limited edition lithographs, and fine art galleries. He loves to create whimsical images of people, monsters, animals, robots, and contraptions that express the many different moods we all feel. John lives in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in North Bend, Washington, with his wife, Connie, and two boys, Jacob and Adam.
"Filled with magic, mythology and mystery, this creative story will enchant longtime fans of the series as well as newcomers. Emmy’s combination of sass and childlike behavior will resonate with young readers heading toward their preteen years." --Kirkus Reviews
