Publisher's Summary

Rick is none too happy when his mother ups and drags him from San Diego, where he had friends, to Arizona, where he knows no one except for Fat Boy, his cat. He dreads a long, dull, boring summer, until the day Madam Yang arrives on the scene. Madam Yang is no fairy godmother. She's a fire-breathing, princess-chasing, time-traveling, hotheaded dragon, with her own ideas on just about everything. Now Rick and his neighbor Natalie are in the hot seat. Will the two of them be able to keep Madam Yang happy, or will their goose be cooked?

Modern take on classic fairy tale!

Where does If That Breathes Fire, We're Toast! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

IMy daughter and I listened to this book and really, really enjoyed it. If That Breathes Fire, We're Toast! is a fun story of a fun loving, independent boy and girl and their adventures with a little dragon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of If That Breathes Fire, We're Toast!?

I really enjoyed the fun fairy tales twists with the girl kissing the frog, and turning animals into other creature/

Which character – as performed by Miranda Stewart – was your favorite?

OF course Madam Yang was my favorite, but my daughter enjoyed plucky Natalie and her babysitting of her little brother.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It would be "a modern take on a fairy tale"
