Chapter 1: The Announcement Dragon

The Announcement Dragon


Itty Bitty Princess Kitty was concentrating very hard. Her legs twitched as she focused on the platform across from her. It was so far away! But she’d seen her parents, the Queen and King of Lollyland, make this jump many times.

You can do this, Itty told herself.

Just then, something outside the window caught her eye. She blinked hard.

Was that… a dragon?



Itty leaped down and raced out of the climbing room. She skidded to a stop in the grand hall, where her parents were standing in front of the palace doors.



“Mom! Dad!” Itty took a deep breath. “There’s a DRAGON outside! Run!”

Queen Kitty smiled. “Yes, darling,” she purred. “No need to worry—or run. It’s an announcement dragon from Wagmire!”





“An announcement dragon?” Itty squeaked. In Lollyland, announcements were made by fairies. Tiny fairies who blew miniature trumpets and did not like to be kept waiting.
