Customer Spotlight: Author Lydia Mann

Author Lydia Mann dropped in this summer to purchase a slew of our dragons to sell along side her book, The Nightmare King (Shadow of Dragons 1), an exciting high fantasy tale for readers aged 10 and up.

The story is about Andy and his sister, Leigh, who journey to The Land of Dreams to rescue Maggie from the dungeon of the Nightmare King. Along their quest they are helped by creatures of myth and legend - Shadow, a huge black dragon; Sir Isaac, a fiercely beautiful eagle; Prince Reginald, a mongoose of royal birth. With the help of their new friends, the children face their fears, conquer new challenges, and mount a daring rescue.

Lydia Mann

You can order the book directly from Amazon, or follow Lydia on Facebook or visit her website to see where you might catch her in person.

Thanks for coming in to see us, Lydia!

Customer Spotlight: Hope Summer Repertory Theatre

Anne, the managing director of Hope Summer Repertory Theatre in Holland, Michigan wrote to tell us that her group used our dragons as part of a musical theater production based on the popular children's book, Dragon Pack Snack Attack.




Prior to and after the show, the group sells merchandise and our dragons became the mascots for the production. The little ones were put into a “Dragon Pack Snack Pack” which includes the little dragon, a burger gummy, two gold coins and a sucker, all of which have to do with the story. In case you were wondering, the red dragon in the story is named Roofus, and the green dragon is Cuddlefluff.
Anne told us that by this time next year, many more groups may be performing the same musical. Break a leg! Check out their Facebook page for future--and mostly sold out--shows.
