An Ordinary Lunch Turns Into A Magic Dragon Adventure!
Alfie is just an ordinary little boy--that is, until he bites into a ham and cheese sandwich with mustard so spicy that it turns him into a fire-breathing dragon!
Soon, he befriends another dragon named Marty, who shows him that dragons lead incredibly busy lives. For starters, they terrorize princesses, battle knights, and guard treasure, but did you know that they are also excellent pizza chefs? Or that they rescue rocket ships stranded in outer space? Or that they are responsible for every warm bath that's ever been taken before bedtime? And all they ask in return is a few fluffy marshmallows--for there's nothing in the whole wide world that a dragon loves better than marshmallows.
So, if you've ever wondered what a day in the life of a dragon is like, spend some time with Marty and Alfie and find out why a dragon's work is never done!
A Fun Project Brings Alfie And Marty To Life!
What if you could sit down and write a real letter to your favorite children's book character? Well, at the end of A Dragon's Work Is Never Done, you can do just that ... you might even get something in return! This is a great project to do with your child or grandchild ... and imagine their delight when they actually hear back from Alfie and Marty! After all, it's not every day you get mail from a dragon ...

When Stephanie Barrett was a child she didn't walk around with a security blanket or a stuffed animal; instead she walked around with a copy of Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever. It might not have been as warm and fuzzy, but it more than made up for it with wonderful stories and beautiful illustrations.
Before long she began to scribble stories of her very own onto construction paper and legal pads. Her love affair with children's books has continued ever since, and she absolutely loves being able to share her books with children of all ages. She lives in central Florida with her husband, dog, and cat.
