Description

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!




About the Author
Kate Klimo first got the idea for this book many years ago when her three sons were small and she came across a geode lying among the rolled-up socks in one of their sock drawers. Now that her sons are all grown up, she has finally found the time to write the story down. When she is not writing, Kate is a children s book publisher. She lives in upstate New York with her husband, Harry, three horses, and one grandcat.

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.



Praise For The Dragon at the North Pole

"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
