When Roger gets lost in the forest, Padraig uses his senses---sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste---to lead his friend home.

Friends come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Sometimes theyre even dragons.
Roger loves adventure. Today hes playing pirate, sailing the high seas, dancing to the hornpipe, and catching fish. But the winds blown him off course and hes . . . well . . . lost.
When Padraig, a kitten-sized, bug-eating dragon, encounters the lost turtle, he offers to help Roger find his way home. Rogers directions take some time to followhis house looks brown, sounds like singing, smells like baking, feels like sand, and tastes like strawberriesand along the way, Roger and Padraig become friends. And friendship always yields unexpected rewards. Like cookies.
