Do you believe in dragons?
What about dragons that don’t breath fire or fly, but which are the most beautiful dancers?
Weedy seadragons are amazing fish with a talent for camouflage, weird eating habits and a unique courtship dance. But their future is threatened.
One of Tasmania’s most imaginative and adaptable children’s authors, Anne Morgan, will talk about the making of this beautiful book with illustrator Lois Bury (not present), and read for for us.
