A long time ago sea shells were rare and precious things. Everyone told stories about them and about the one place in the world where they were washed up on the beach. That one place was far away a beautiful cove where the bright shells glowed with all the colors of the sea, the home of the shell dragon. In this enchanting picture book, Lynn Zirkel tells the gentle lyrical story of how the exquisite shells came to be spread around the world for everyone to enjoy thanks in part to a dragon with a ticklish nose! The tale is perfectly complemented by delicate detailed illustrations in pastel tones by Peter Bowman that bring out the full beauty of the natural world .
