Dragon Whistles

flora-15r_1024x768This gorgeous illustration by Jack Wiens depicts a scene in my latest children’s picture book project, Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon. Here, Dreami is giving Flora Belle her dragon whistle that can be heard anywhere in the world but only by the dragon who gave it to her. Dragons have just one such whistle and they are very careful to whom they give it. Besides their friendship, it is the greatest gift a dragon can share with anyone.

I’ve just requested that the the story and illustrations be laid out in the Kindle, softcover, hardcover book formats; the covers be created; and the back cover text to be edited. Once they are all done, the book will be ready for release, perhaps in about three weeks.

With Love,

  1. The illustration is gorgeous!

  2. Yay, Milanda will love this. We just had a very interesting Skype conversation about dragons a few months ago. She contends that the American view on dragons is diametrically opposed to the Chinese view. I agreed, but told her we did have some books and songs where dragons were seen as friendly.( I believe she was thinking more of the dragons in the Harry Potter Series.)Lovely illustration!.
