Hush, Little Dragon
by Boni Ashburn
Illustrated by Kelly Murphy
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2008.
Adorable dragons search for a bedtime snack in this heartfelt and funny debut picture book set to the tune of “Hush, Little Baby.” 

Baby and Mama dragon are almost ready to settle in for the night. But Baby can’t sleep until he gets a treat, so together they search for one in a beautifully detailed village. But there are so many options to choose from! Will they devour the town’s magician? Eat the three musketeers? Gobble up the princess? Or maybe dine on the mean old queen? Exhausted from their clever culinary adventure, Mama and Baby dragon settle down to a good night’s sleep in this warm, funny tale. 

Using a tried-and-true lullaby with a clever twist, and warm illustrations to bring the story to life, this picture book will be a familiar yet original read for picky eaters—and readers—at bedtime and story-time.
Hush little dragon, don’t make a sound...
