In this funny and imaginative salute to mischievous little kids, a young boy blames mishaps on the dragon in the closet only he can see.
The dragon in the closet can be a bit fickle. One minute he’s dancing like a goof and being sweet to the little ones, and the next he’s sneaking treats out of the cookie jar and leaving dirty footprints on the carpet. The worst part is that after the dragon causes heaps of trouble, he goes invisible and leaves a little boy to answer for all his bad behavior…But did the dragon really do it?
