So in an attempt to see her fairy tale ringtrue, Jill invites Dragon out of the book so she can teachhim some alternative life skills.Dragon throws himself into all of Jill's favourite things:flower arranging, fashion styling, playing the trumpet,and hosting a tea party, with disappointing results.When it seems like all hope is lost, Jill and Dragondiscover Dragon has one very unique, and palatable,hidden talent...A stunning debut from an exciting illustrator, Jill andDragon introduces a feisty, independent-minded newcharacter in Jill, and reminds us that everyone has atalent, however well hidden.
