Alfie is just an ordinary little boy - that is, until he bites into a ham and cheese sandwich with mustard so spicy that it turns him into a fire-breathing dragon!
Soon, he befriends another dragon named Marty, who shows him that dragons lead incredibly busy lives. For starters, they terrorize princesses, battle knights, and guard treasure, but did you know that they are also excellent pizza chefs? Or that they rescue rocket ships stranded in outer space? Or that they are responsible for every warm bath that's ever been taken before bedtime? And all they ask in return is a few fluffy marshmallows - for there's nothing in the whole wide world that a dragon loves better than marshmallows.
So, if you've ever wondered what a day in the life of a dragon is like, spend some time with Marty and Alfie and find out why a dragon's work is never done!

I had bought this book downloadable to my kindle and read it to my six-year old daughter.She was thoroughly enchanted with the story, loved the adventure with the dragon. I thought this would be a good story for her to listen to in the car or at bedtime, and the audio book version is great! The author does a really nice job reading her book. My daughter asks for it every time we drive anywhere, and she's already looking forward to the next one in the Alfie Sandwich Series.
I enjoyed the Kindle version of this book and I thought the audiobook would be great to have whenever I'm watching nieces or nephews, friends' kids, etc. I'm really happy with the audiobook version. The author does a great job reading her book--it's always cool when authors choose to read their own work and it comes out well. Basically, it's a 30 minute story that really stimulates a kid's imagination, and it's a whole lot better than TV!
I may have purchased poorly here, but my 5 year old wasn't as engrossed with this book as she has been with others. The story is cute, but it is read without much to write home about in terms of performance. Sweet rather than a must-have,
