I expected another over-the-top story about a dragon and a child but this was better. My eight and six-year-old were pulled away from their books to listen to me read and to look at the illustrations. A good recommendation for a book.

An endearing little story of a grandpa and grandson staring into a fire and seeing an adventure.

Ok illustrations.

My grandson and I utterly love this book. And why not? It's about the imaginary adventures of a grandfather and his grandson, and it involves bicycles and a fire-breathing dragon. Caves! Jungles! A fire truck with a fire hose! Absolute heaven!

I've wanted to be a children's book author as far back as I can remember. When I was eight years old I wrote a story about a rabbit. I am still writing stories about rabbits- and mice, cats, children, monsters, and dragons!
