Synopsis:
Away across the oceans, 
where few have dared to roam,
upon a wondrous island, 
a family made its home.

Living on an island means life is full of adventure for brothers Flynn and Paddy. So when a dragon swoops out of the sky and nabs their beloved dog, Coco, Flynn and Paddy know it's up to them to bring her home.  That night, they pack their bags, make some terrible sandwiches, and set off on an epic adventure...

My Thoughts:
A very cute story about two brothers, Flynn and Paddy, and their beloved dog, Coco, who is whisked away by a dragon. They set out on a journey to find the dragon and rescue their pet. 

Told in rhyming verse, this fun little adventure is sure to become a favorite of young children everywhere. The illustrations fit the mood of the story, are fun, and even include a map! 


This is the first in a trilogy of picture books for children so this is perfect for young children who want more to the story. Keep an eye out for the sequels, The Dragon Tamers and The Dragon Riders!
