Featured in this picture book for youngsters three years of age and up are two very lonely, unhappy creatures. One of them is an 'all-alone girl' who lives in a castle and is so very, very unhappy because she doesn't have a dragon for a friend.

Far away there is a dragon, an 'all-alone dragon' that lives in a big dragon cave and dreams of having a little girl as a friend.

The little girl who lives in the castle was so sad that she cried silver tears. She shed so many tears that they trickled down the stairs and out the door. Eventually, those silver tears found their way to where the dragon lived. Naturally, the curious dragon followed the tear trail all the way to the little girl's castle.

Then the fun began! ''I am here!' roared Dragon. 'You're a dear!' whispered Girl.'

What follows is a wonderful tale of discovery as the friendship between these two lonely individuals blossoms into something special. 'Now they're friends. Best friends. Forever friends.'

Friendship is important and, as this story illustrates, opposites do attract. So many times a friend may be someone you might not consider at first glance yet, given time, you might be surprised what type of lasting relationship develops.
