Follow the rules to stay safe,
keep your eyes open!
Jax doesn’t need a babysitter! The Black 9 year old isn’t happy that he has to stay with old Ma while Mom is in court to fight being evicted.
Hmm…he is intrigued when a squirrel zips into Ma’s apartment and tries to feed whatever is in Ma’s big handbag, the thing that came from Madagascar, something that Ma needs to deliver elsewhere – very special lizards!
There’s a transporter in Prospect Park?
The lizards are really dragons?
Ma is a witch?!
Maybe Jax can help Ma as her apprentice, if he follows the rules: keep the dragons in their case and never feed them.
When a problem with the transporter lands Jax and the baby dragons back in Brooklyn without Ma, he enlists the help of his best friend Vik to get the dragons safely to their new home in another dimension.
First in a series, followed by The Dragon Thief !
What mythic creature would you like to see in your town?
