School's out and summer camp is HOT! Especially hot if you are a dragon heading for fiery skill-building games at Camp Dragon-Fire. When Willard and his friends go to camp, mysterious things happen -- will their trap catch the chaos-causing creatures? Find out here!

Camp Dragon-Fire is patterned after one of my favorite places, a real camp! Camp Mission Meadows is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Chautauqua in western New York, where I made new friends, played archery and other camp games, learned to canoe and sail, and crawled out of my sleeping bag early every morning to watch the flag hoisted up the flagpole. We didn't have any fire-breathing contests, but my favorite candy at the canteen was also the favorite of Willard the Dragon: Atomic Fireballs!

What do YOU do at camp? Do you have a favorite camp activity or food?

  1. Suzy, I love that you were inspired by your childhood camp, Camp Mission Meadows, to create this beautiful children's book. It must been a heavenly place to make such an impression.

    Such an adorable book! Fun-to-read story and amazing illustrations. With no young ones at home, the Dragon-Fire book series make heavenly grandma gifts for my friends.

    Looking forward to your next book!
