When a Dragon Moves In read by Mark Duplass
If you build a perfect sandcastle, a dragon will move in. And thatÕs exactly what happens to one very lucky boy at the beach. Dad is busy sunbathing and Mom is busy with her book, so the boy and dragon roam the beach together, flying a kite, braving the waves, and roasting marshmallows. But no one believes him when he shares the news of his magnificent dragon: Mom only hears the roar of the ocean, Dad thinks the dragon feather is a seagull feather, and know-it-all sis claims thereÕs no such thing as a dragon. ThatÕs when the sandwiches mysteriously disappear, claw prints are found in the brownies, and dragon-giggles erupt from the strangest of places. Heh-heh-heh. Is there truly a mischievous dragon running around on the beach or is someoneÕs imagination running wild? Decide for yourself When a Dragon Moves In.
