Dragons Are Not for Sale
Tjibbe Veldkamp and Alice Hoogstad
Back at home, Ezzygot out his Almanac of All Animals and looked under the letter D. Then he put on a warm sweater, strapped on his largest backpack and started climbing the bare mountain.
Three days passed.
When Ezzy descended from the bare mountain he was no longer wearing his sweater and his backpack was bursting at the seams.
What is Ezzy carrying with him? What is he up to?
