Matthew's Dragon
illustrated by Jos. A. Smith
Matthew’s mother has just read him a bedtime story about dragons, but he is not ready for sleep. Neither is the dragon from his story. The two embark on a heroic and magical adventure, which Matthew’s dragon celebrates with a midnight flight amidst “all the dragons ever put into the world of story,” before settling finally back home to bed.
Filled with imaginative creatures, incandescent colors and thrilling motion, Smith's paintings of the dragon-crowded sky are truly breathtaking. This is an inspired pairing of author and illustrator.
