You may remember I had to deal with an unruly dragon a few days ago. Today, that dragon's extended family showed up to boycott my story time at the Ericson Public Library in Boone.

However, the dragon invasion wouldn't stop us from dreaming big! There were big dreams of fantastic treehouses!

There were also big dreams of having casts signed!

Later, at the Nevada Public Library, they placed me in the "Young Adult" section. I must be moving up in the world.

Some of my young friends tried to scare me with their "batty" headgear! How did they know bats freak me out?

And, although it wasn't a confirmed sighting, we believe the rare bandana-wearing frog made a visit to story time, too!
