On a cold, windy, Autumn day, I, Leroy Robinson walked to school as usual with my best friend, Anthony Parker. It would seem that this day was a regular ordinary day, but it wasn’t. Not only was it the first day of Fall, but it was the day we would visit, the newly renovated public library in Pembroke Pines, with my class. I got so carried away by my excitement that before I knew it, we had arrived at the School. Anthony and I didn’t even wait for the bell to ring, and rushed to our classroom.

Soon we headed out for the library, all and everyone in my classroom. Little did I know, the adventure it would turn out to be. Ms. Williams led us to some tables in the middle of the library and gave us a small speech on behavior before we were to take out any books we wanted to read and enjoy. “ Finally, I advise you all to think before you act.” she finished, “Or else be ready to face the music.” We all nodded in understanding and then we were given some rules to follow.

I followed, Anthony and we stopped in the fantasy section. The books in this section were filled with awesome pictures, some beautiful, and some scary There were so many books I didn't know where to begin,but I had to start somewhere, so I chose a huge book titled, The Magical Dragon. I sat down and opened the book. I started reading and found myself very interested in the story, turning the pages and seeing wonderful drawings of dragons and castles.

Time passed by and all of a sudden I turned the page of my book and I saw a dragon
leap towards me, he just jumped right out of the page! It nearly frightened me to death! the dragon just looked at me with a mad expression on his face and said “How dare you wake me up, little boy!” I was more shocked than ever now, a dragon who talks? “Well?” he asked impatiently. “ I- uh….I - I’m sorry?” I said not sure of what to say. I had to be dreaming right? “ Humph! I’m sorry won’t do young man! I was taking my beauty sleep and you woke me up! Now how am I going to go back to sleep?”

I didn’t know what to say and just stared at the dragon. It was little, for a dragon it was tiny. It was red, had scales and a beautiful tail with a point at the end. The dragon was really angry now and it opened its mouth. Fire came out, but since he was so small, it did no harm. It was then I looked around me and saw I was alone! I had found myself out on a limb! “ Oh no!” I cried “ Everyone left without me!” I started to get up, but the dragon flew up right in front of my face, it was shaking with anger now. “Oh no you don’t!” He yelled. “ You woke me up and now you will put me back to sleep!” I was so surprised I couldn’t speak for a moment.

“You want me to what? Put you to sleep, but just how-” before the dragon could reply I had an idea. Suddenly, I began to sing. The dragon stared at me with surprise, but only for a moment, pretty soon the soft melody of my lullaby, had it yawning and closing its eyes. Five minutes later, it was snoring peacefully, already inside the book where it belonged. Now to find my class, I thought. I tried to get up but I couldn’t it felt like someone was grabbing at me shaking. “What-…

“Leroy! Wake up, honey. Leroy?” I opened my eyes and I knew it had been a dream. I was in my bed and today was the day we would be going to the library. It would still be a great day and I already felt like a million dollars!
