I Thought I saw a Dragon Late Last Night! by Clayton J. Liotta


Though the little boy's name isn't mentioned he has an imagination in this rhyming sing-song story, I Thought I saw a Dragon Late Last Night.  The little boy thinks he saw a dragon so the next morning he goes out to find the dragon.  Oh, the places he goes and the fun he has along the way will capture any child as they go along to help him find the dragon.  This is a very cute book.  The author is the illustrator as well.  Illustrations are done in pencil and very well.  A cute book that 3-6 year olds would have fun with.

Clayton Liotta is an Author, Illustrator, Cartoonist, and Film Maker with quite a background. As a boy, a band of gypsies found him living under a squashed cabbage leaf. They whisked him away, and made him part of their roving caravan, where he learned the ancient art of broom making. He spent countless hours weaving straw into brooms and listening to stories told by tribal elders. Sitting around the campfire, Clayton was fascinated by the gypsies' ancient tales. Soon, he found himself sketching in the dirt with leftover pieces of straw. Once they saw his interpretive drawings, the gypsies realized that they should preserve their unique stories on paper- along with Clayton's sketches. An illustrator was born. Until now, Clayton's work was known only in gypsy caravans. (And how many gypsy caravans do you see these days???) Clayton has since left the simple gypsy lifestyle for bright lights, big cities, cheeseburgers, fries, and cable TV.....Where he lives quietly!
