"Hush, Little Dragon
is a humorous children's picturebook that turns a traditional child's lullaby on its head. A doting mother dragon soothes her hatchling by singing him a rhyme - and bringing him human snacks! The whimsical color illustrations add just the right touch to this tongue-in-cheek bedtime storybook. "Hush, little dragon, don't make a sound. / Mama's gonna bring you a princess she found. // If that princess runs from you, / Mama's gonna bring you a knight or two. // And if those knights should try to flee, / Mama's gonna get a bit fiery. // When you want more goodies to munch, / Mama's gonna bring you a king for lunch."
