Description

The girl and dragon who became best friends in Lovabye Dragon find each other again in this second oh-so-sweet tale.

In a game of hide-and-seek, Girl wanders too far. Dragon looks everywhere—every here, every there—but Girl is lost. Alone in the woods, she tries hard not to cry, but the silver tears come anyway. Then, with the special connection between truly devoted, very special friends, Dragon hears the beating of her trembly heart. With his bright dragon fire, he lights up the night, shining the way to a delightful reunion. “Evermore, evermore, I am here,” he assures her. Any child frightened by the night or feeling a tad lonely will relish the feeling of being wrapped in the protective wings of friendship.
