Rain raps the windows, wind rattles the door.
‘Let’s look for storm dragons,” says Grandpa.
“ Watch out dragons. We’re coming.”
Off they go, Grandpa and grandchild, down to the beach for a wild and wonderful adventure…And what do they find? Dragon footprints, dragon jewels and even a dragon baby, but who is the REAL storm dragon.
A great story and amazingly engaging illustrations as Grandpa and grandchild find their way along the beach as the storm blows, and waves crash on the shore. There are chants and repetitions to shout out as the adventure progresses.
The loving friendship and imaginative play between the generations is wonderfully expressed, both with the words and in the illustrations.
