Staff Reviews


Such a sweet story with gorgeous illustrations. I'm in love with the dragon and the little boy's quest to save each other from the "night"/"knight". This book is perfect for anyone who needs to conquer their fears or at least look at them from another point of view. You'll want to read it at bedtime so you can snuggle it close as you fall asleep. — From Brandi's Picks (page 1)

Description


A boy and his dragon embark on a dazzling nighttime journey in this heartwarming friendship story about facing fears and helping others.

Georgie is afraid of the night. It's too dark with the lights off. Too quiet with everyone asleep. And being alone makes everything worse. The dragon is afraid of the knight. After all, the knight carries a heavy sword, and he always wants to fight. The dragon knows just what to do to help Georgie overcome his fear, and the two set off on a unforgettable magical adventure. But when the morning comes, the dragon is still afraid of the knight. How can Georgie help his friend? With kindness and empathy--and a little creativity--maybe Georgie can work some magic of his own.

J. R. Krause, an award-winning animator of The Simpsons and Futurama, has created a visually stunning story with incredible emotional depth, which addresses the needs of children to express their feelings and be received with kindness and empathy.
