The Dragon Who Became a Scout
By: Terry Markoff
About the Book
After Fire Breath, a huge golden dragon, flies over a new and exciting land, he knows that he has finally discovered a place that he can call home. At first, the woodland creatures that inhabit this land embrace their new neighbor. They welcome Fire Breath with open hearts, arms, paws and wings. Unfortunately, after awhile, Fire Breath’s allergies begin to act up with disastrous results. Soon fearing for their own safety, fewer and fewer animals turn out to welcome him upon his daily visits.
Finally, he stops visiting them and spends most of each day watching over the forest from his perch atop the highest tree in the land. One day he notices something strange on the main trail that meanders through the forest. Little did he know how much his whole world would change as he flies down to take a closer look.
