The Dragon's Coming After You

The Dragon's Coming After You (1994) Post 390

The Dragon's Coming After You is a rhyming story about just what it says on the tin. The dragon is chasing a group of kids in various imaginative ways and they're all squealing and fleeing. The illustrator shows just how much danger the kids are (not) in. This is one of those bright, colourful, cheerful books with a lot of repetition to model sentences for those just becoming confident with reading.

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
