Surprised Dragon Excerpt:

It was a lazy afternoon on Ahway Island. The sun shined brightly. There wasn’t acloud in the sky nor a breeze to rustle the leaves of the trees. Many animals were taking an afternoon nap in the warmth of the sun. Everything was still, except Dragon, who was sitting by the side of the pond, dipping a toe into the water and watching the ripple it made on the surface. Dragon yawned, feeling peaceful and calm, but also a little curious.

Truth be told, Dragon was always curious. Dragon loved to learn new things. Dragon loved to figure out how things worked. Dragon loved to understand why things happened a certain way and not another. Most of all, Dragon loved to explore Ahway Island and discover new places. And the best way to do that was to ride on the Sparkling Train.
