AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Kumiko doesn't like going to bed. She can't sleep. The reason she can't sleep is the giant dragon that sits outside her bedroom window every single night. So one night she plucks up the courage to ask the dragon to leave, not knowing that the truth she is about to discover is more thrilling than anything she could ever have imagined.' (Publisher's blurb)
