The fiery heroine of Carmen Deedy's best-selling children's book, The Library Dragon, is now available as a flip doll. In The Library Dragon, Miss Lotta Scales is the thick-skinned library dragon with a burning love of books that jealously guards the library at Sunrise Elementary School. But when an unsuspecting child wanders into the library and begins to read aloud joyfully from a storybook, Miss Lotta Scales is transformed into Miss Lotty, a gentle school librarian. Based on the illustrations created for the book by Michael P. White, the Library Dragon is now available in a colorful, all-cotton 12-inch flip doll. Held one way, children encounter Miss Lotta Scales the dragon, in a long yellow dress, complete with fangs, iridescent wings, and a tail. Turn the doll upside down, and the dragon is transformed into the smiling, kind-hearted Miss Lotty complete with beehive hair-do. Of course she keeps her tail. Every librarian needs to be a little bit of a dragon-or else, who would guard the books? The Library Dragon flip doll is the perfect addition to library or classroom story hours or as a child's fun-loving companion.
I'm the new kid. I am tuf. This morning I beat up a kid. It's only the first day of school for Dexter, but he's already mad at the principal, and the secretary, and the janitor, and the kids who laugh at him. When his teacher tells the class to write a story, Dexter writes about how tough he is -- and how he's already gotten into a fight. Is any of Dexter's story true? Why was the other boy crying before Dexter hit him? And why would the other boy still want to be Dexter's friend? Even Dexter doesn't know the answers to some of those questions. But as he deals with family problems, a persistent teacher, and a boy who's strangely interested in floor wax, he discovers many surprises hidden in his own tale.
