Less a fully plotted short story and more a prologue for a series, with something of a "beginning of the end" feel to it. Good as an introduction to the author's world and writing, but not a stand-alone story. Let's call it three and a half stars.

Ah, a quiet morning just the baby and a kitchen full of sunshine! But the baby boy isn't alone in the living room, he is riding a wingless dragon and enjoying it. What happens when mother finds the playmate? Fun easy and quick read.
