It's summertime, and you're invited for a rollicking day at the pool with Charlie and his pet dragon (and best friend!), Rosie. But be careful--swimming with a dragon can be, um, challenging. As Rosie and Charlie blow bubbles (don't forget your umbrella!), practice flutter kicks (watch out for tidal waves!), and offer shoulder rides (hang on tight!), Rosie proves that dragons make the most fun pets ever. Now if only Charlie can keep Rosie's attention focused on the rules at the pool and NOT on her gummy snacks (you know, the ones that cause stinky dragon breath!)...Grab your towels and sunscreen and join Rosie and Charlie for a fun-filled summer adventure!
