by Bridges DelPonte

little dustiesSnore. Tutu. Lefty. Mouse. Woof. The Little Dusties. These teeny little dust buddies live everywhere in a home, but no one knows they are there—except Ocho, the family’s sheep dog. In The Roar of the Silver Dragon, these tiny dust balls play all day and night, except for one day a week—Cleaning Day! On Saturday, the Little Dusties hide in Tutu’s closet to avoid the dreaded Silver Dragon that roars and scoops up all of the household dust. When the Silver Dragon makes a surprising appearance on a gray Thursday, the Little Dusties must work as a team to save Snore who got vacuumed up while napping. With Ocho’s help, the Little Dusties rally together and rescue Snore from the next morning’s trash pickup. This lovely picture book, aimed at ages 4-8, presents themes of friendship, teamwork and concern for others. Each teeny little dust ball has its own special qualities and whimsical illustrations to delight children of all backgrounds.
