About the Book
What can a little boy teach a big dragon? And what happens when you look fear in the face?
Tommy Tomato, with hair the color of campfire coals, learned well from his Grampy. Tommy’s new friend is a dragon who wants to stomp on all the rooftops in the town when it rains.
This tennis-shoe-wearing dragon wants to roar like no other, breathing a jet stream of fire.
But he can’t – because his pilot light’s gone out!
Much like an affirmation repeated before sleep – when the subconscious mind of kids is highly receptive to positive thoughts – this bedtime story will . . . have you too looking fear in the face.
Get ready for one surprise after another with Tommy Tomato, and more than one surprise ending.
