Laura Lippman & Kate Samworth - Liza & the Dragon - Signed

SIGNED Picture Book 

"Bestselling crime fiction author Lippman's picture book debut tells the story of what happens when Liza Jane fires her mom and dad and hires the first applicant who comes to the door to be her new parent. The only problem is that the dragon has only one response to all problems: opening his mouth and belching fire. No one wants to play with Liza Jane. And all that fire is bad for the furniture."
--Publishers Weekly, Big Indie Books of Fall 2018

Liza Jane believed she could find better parents. So she fired her mom and dad and hired the first applicant who came to the door--what could possibly go wrong? 

And at first everything was fun. The dragon did whatever Liza Jane wanted him to do. But it turned out the dragon had only one response to all problems--opening his mouth and belching fire. Suddenly, people were scared of Liza Jane. The pizza delivery man didn't want to come to her house. No one wanted to play with her. And all that fire was very bad for the furniture. 

Could Liza Jane have been wrong about what kind of qualities she wanted in a parent?
