A timely tale for children and their run-ragged grownups.

A young dragon’s family is too busy scorching castles to play. Bartholomew decides he’ll find more time, even if he has to steal it — and the day takes an unexpected turn for everyone.

A good friend of mine, Angela A. Corson, turns school cafeterias, libraries, and hallways into magical places with her whimsical murals. You can check out her work at angelacorson.com. When I asked her if she’d like to work on an ebook project with me for the fun of it, she started sketching. Before it was finished, she brought her talented nephew Sebastian Alvarado into the project. We hope you have as much fun reading about sweet Bartholomew as we had creating him.
