A dauntless lass and a hyperactive dragon learn to keep pace with each other as they forge a friendship.

Baby Dragon loves to swoop and soar through the kingdom, which can cause quite a stir. But one little girl is up for the challenge of spending the day with Baby Dragon, and the two embark upon an exciting journey through the kingdom, where they run and race and climb and explore--and eventually even take the time to relish a quiet moment. New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr has crafted a rollicking story about how the best friendships expand our horizons in all kinds of ways!

Praise For Baby Dragon, Baby Dragon!

“This baby dragon's exuberance can't be contained: he zips through the castle at high speeds, startling people left and right. But one girl is determined to keep up with him. . . . Offers a simple, repetitive prose text that will calm ebullient listeners. Podesta's irresistibly adorable pencil, ink, and gouache illustrations are the highlight, and that rascally dragon is the clear scene-stealer. A bedtime-hour adventure.”--Booklist
