One day, Girl and Dragon played a game of hide and seek. First, Dragon hid, curling his “Drag-enormo-self” behind a very small rock. Try as she might, looking everywhere, even climbing a tree to get a better look, Girl cannot find him until Dragon jumps out with a resounding, “BOO!” When it is Girl’s turn to hide, she runs far away, through the woods, across the logs in the bog, across a tall, tall bridge, “to a faraway place with such a hidey-hole place,” and she didn’t make a sound. There she waited for Dragon. . .and waited for Dragon to come find her. She waited so long she fell asleep. Dragon looked everywhere for Girl, but to no avail. Girl was lost. Indeed, she was lost when she woke up and came out of her hidey-hole place. It was deep, dark night, and there was no moon, no stars, no best friend. She was alone. And afraid. Girl tried so hard to be brave and not to cry, but she did cry, and her heart thumped a sound that only Dragon friends—very very special friends can hear. And when Dragon found Girl, he wrapped his wings around her and she was safe with her evermore friend. The rhyming story is a delightful read aloud that will appeal to friends everywhere.
