Cara is typical eleven-year-old: she loves roasted swan, hates swamp slugs, owns her own lakeside cottage, and has a dragon for a best friend, named Charlie.
When Charlie accidentally burns down Cara’s cottage, the two friends set out to search for a new home. Unfortunately, the village mob, two murderous trolls, and a psychotic wizard with low self-esteem stand in their way.
The first novelette of The Adventures of Cara and Charlie, humorist Matthew Dean’s debut satirical series for grown-up children and child-like adults.
“An astounding account of the dragon incident. This is a must-have book for our village.”
“If nothing else, it is a guide to navigating relationships between humans and dragons. Who cooks? Who flies? This book delves into all these sensitive issues and more.”
