My name is John King and I work in Dundalk Institute of Technology Library and am also studying in the School of Information and Library Studies in UCD.
Tony the Dragon started life in my head when my Daughter Mia Anna King was born. She is currently living the Czech Republic and I miss her terribly. My way of showing her what she means to me is by writing this book. Ive got all my friends involved and they have been all kinds of wonderful, many have little dragons of their own.
It took a long time for him to hatch. Now he's ready to meet the world and I do mean world as it is now being translated into Irish, Czech, Croatian,Russian,Arabic and Dutch.
I have already raised enough money for a prototype print run of a 100 copies before xmas The money raised will go to a larger print run in the new year
If I invited you to join this quest its because inside of us is magic of a child's Christmas present in you and that is what this book is and will always be. So join me and get a wonderful book for the wonderful little dragons in your life
