Dragon Daily News
by Gene Twaronite
“… he heard a strange rumbling noise coming from the kitchen. Then a loud crash. He got there just in time to see a small glacier go right through the kitchen wall, into the living room, and out the front door.”(from“The Glacier That Almost Ate Main Street”)
A glacier that starts in a refrigerator is just one of the weird
things that can happen in these twenty-one stories by
Highlights for Children author Gene Twaronite. What if you
showed up for school one day, but the school wasn’t there?
What if words suddenly leapt off the page in the book you’re
reading and floated away? What if the jet you’re on is afraid
to fly? What if your parents gave you a real live rhino for your
birthday? What if a little snake stretched and stretched to
become the longest snake in the world? What if dragons
really exist somewhere? What if …? Discover the answers to
these and other questions. But be careful. Imagination can be
a dangerous thing … especially if someone closes the book on
you while you’re inside.
While some of these stories were first published in magazines
including Highlights for Children and Read (Weekly Reader),
many are brand new. So what are you waiting for? Jump right in—
have fun with your head!
