Me and My Dragon

don't want a dog, a cat or a hamster as a pet. I want a dragon. Now I don't want just any dragon either. I want one that isn't too big so he'll be able to stay in my room with me. I also want a fire-breathing dragon.
hen I get my dragon home I'll give him a name. I think I'll call him Sparky . When he's big enough, I'll teach him to fly and I'll get a collar and leash for him so we can do
parky and I will do all sorts of things together. There will be summer camping trips, trick-or-treating on Halloween, and he'll help me clear the snow off the neighbors' driveways during the winter.
f I miss the bus Sparky will get me to school on time and he can stick around for show-and-tell. No one would dare bully me with Sparky at my side either.
t dinner time my pet dragon will sit under the table and eat the Brussels sprouts I slip him. You know dragons just love Brussels sprouts. I'll have to remember not to give him broccoli, though. It gives dragons gas and you definitely don't want a fire-breathing dragon with a bad case of gas!
here are plenty of other cool things my dragon and I can do together. If you read this picture book you'll see what they are and I also include a few important
on raising a dragon. You won't want to miss those!
