This perennial favourite is now available with a beautifully redesigned cover!

On Ai Lien's birthday, her father gives her a stone from China. "It feels special," he tells her with a twinkle in his eye. "Perhaps it is a dragon's egg!"

The stone is pretty, and Ai Lien places it on her dresser. She can hardly believe what happens next. In the middle of the night, the stone cracks and opens . . . and a baby dragon is born. He's not just any dragon, either. He's the son of the Dragon King of the Yangtze River — and he's magic.

Soon, what's seemed like the worst year of Ai Lien's life becomes a time of adventure and wonder!

Editorial Review

Praise for The Dragon's Egg:

Regional Winner, OLA Silver Birch Award, 1996

"[A] book that is fun to read, largely due to the fascinating details about Chinese dragons . . . It is also a lively account of happenings in Toronto's Chinatown, and the China-related festivals and traditions one can experience there." —CM Magazine
