Here's a rhyming bedtime story with a difference, JL Morin's Tuck-a-tuck Dragon, fierily illustrated by Stephan and Nicole Theo. It's all about an outsider at a draconic sleepover party ... Tan Dragon.

After the party games the multi-colored dragons settle to sleep in caves but not Tan Dragon - 'They would not let him in, till the rain started pouring, And said, "There was never ever a dragon so boring."' Then they started to tell tales 'to frighten each other for fun.' The scariest stories were of children, for infants terrify dragons!

When the dragons hear a baby cry, they all dive under the covers. They send Tan Dragon to sprinkle magical sand to put the babes to sleep. Though he's fearful, he plucks up his courage and does what's needed. Then he tucks the other dragons in and sprinkles them too, till they sleep 'in a dragon rainbow.'
