Dragons in a Bag

(2) 4-6 Illustrated by Geneva B. Jax meets Ma--who has just received a package containing three dragons. The dragons cannot stay in Brooklyn ("They came from one world, and they're on their way to another"), and the pair's quest to deliver the creatures takes several unexpected turns involving time travel, magic, and a host of vividly portrayed characters. This suspenseful illustrated novel is a welcome addition to the underpopulated genre of African American middle-grade fantasy.
