About The Event

A kindly woodchuck couple who long for a child rejoice when their wish brings a teeny tiny girl named Dandelion. Dandelion is a delight, but when she spills a pitcher of milk, the frightened child runs off into the forest. There she meets a snowshoe hare, a bear picking blackberries, and a dragon who is fiercely guarding his shining jewels. Is Dandelion quick enough to snatch a jewel, or does she have something to trade ? What is it that a dragon living deep in a dark cave has never known ?

Come to the Farmington Library at 10:30 on Saturday, September 28th and find out for yourself !
