Published: July 1, 2011
With Christmas just around the corner, Little Dragon Publishing is pleased to announce the release of its first book, The Thing I Say I Saw Last Night: A Christmas Story written by Wendy McKernan and illustrated by Izabela Bzymek.
The Thing I Say I Saw Last Night is a humorous picture book with engaging rhyming text and vivid yet whimsical full color illustrations.
The story begins with a boy waking up his younger sister to tell her about an incredible event that took place the night before. When he tells her he heard a strange noise, she imagines the worst – a purple, hairy, scary-looking monster. However, as the story progresses, more details emerge and the character she envisions goes through a series of changes until the final surprise ending.
This original Christmas story is for children aged 3 to 8 and will appeal to both boys and girls, and to adults who remember the magic of Christmas.
