Whenever Holly Haggarty visits bookstores, libraries or schools to talk about her book, Summer Dragons, an impish dragon is often seen with her. Many readers wonder how Holly met this dragon. In fact, Holly met him in the boreal forest around Thunder Bay. Believing, like Beth, that dragons exist, Holly and her family had gone searching for dragons. They captured photos, which show how Holly met and befriended her dragon.
