A warm and funny picture book about behaving yourself when visiting friends, created by the award-winning Caryl Hart and Rosalind Beardshaw.
When a dragon comes to stay, will she behave herself? Why, of course she will. Obviously she knows she must share her toys 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 . . . she is a DRAGON after all!
This delightful rhyming story is full of recognisable pre-school behaviour, and part of a series that includes When a Dragon Comes to Stay and When a Dragon Meets a Baby.
