When a Dragon Comes to Stay

Caryl Hart, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw
NZD $16.99

A delightful rhyming picture book all about manners - good and bad!

When a dragon comes to stay, will she behave herself? Why, of course she will. Obviously she knows she must share her toys, eat daintily and skip happily upstairs at bathtime. Well . . . not quite. Like all toddlers, this little dragon finds good manners a tiny bit tricky. It's lucky she has some friends to help her.
