Wherever Elizabeth Raum has lived (and she’s lived in Vermont, New Jersey, North Dakota, New York, and Michigan), she has checked the neighborhood for dragons.
“I love the idea that there are fantastic adventures awaiting us in our own backyards,” she says. But since she never found a dragon of her own, she decided to write about one instead in Cedric and the Dragon.
Cedric reminds her of her granddaughters who are learning to look for the good in others and to treat everyone with kindness. Elizabeth has written nearly 100 books for children. She enjoys biking, reading, and hugging!
