Mir | 702 comments This was a picture book I had when I was 4 or 5, about a little girl who is born with a dragon tail. She likes her tail but wants to give it back to the dragon who was born missing it.

New York: Holt, Rinehart, 1974.

Zora, a fortuneteller with a talking cat, finds a baby girl with a dragon tail on her doorstep. Firerose needs help feeling happy with her tail and then without it. Even though Firerose saves Zora from a shark with her tail and fire, she isn't allowed in school. They travel to Dragon City and give the tail to a dragon born without one, so Firerose can go on with life as a person. Realistic black and white drawings throughout.

Mir | 702 comments That sounds right -- I do remember a scene with swimming. I thought mine was in color, though... I'll have to find a copy to be sure. Thanks!

Mir | 702 comments My library doesn't have it, so I think for now I better assume that is the right book. I'll move it to solved until I can locate the book.
