Once upon a time, in a far away land, two young bear cubs were playing. They were brother and sister and were as close as could be. Prince Dayshawn, the older cub, was dark brown and larger than his sister, while Princess Kameela was smaller and the colour of the honey both loved to eat.
One day Dayshawn found a strange object on the ground. It was an egg, but much larger than any he had ever seen before.
“Let’s take it home and see if it hatches,” said Kameela.
So they did.
Professional Reviews Great book!
WOW! WOW! WOW! You took me back to childhood. That was so beautiful and so real. You had me in tears. I am very impressed. One of the best tales I have ever read. BEAUTIFUL!
I really liked this book, so much that I bought one for a nephew, grandchild, & myself. It is a wonderful tale that I think all children will enjoy. It's a little bit fairy tale and a little bit make believe, and it shows how friendship & love can last through separation & time. I enjoyed reading it, and I can't wait to read it to my nephew and grandchild. It will be one of those story books that will be around for a long time...and should be a part of any child’s library.
Pegasus: A Dragon's Tale is a softcover fantasy picturebook, featuring a pair of anthropomorphic bear cubs who are the prince and princess of a faraway kingdom, and the dragon they befriend. When Prince Dayshawn and Princess Kameela discover an abandoned egg, they take it home, keep it warm, and are delighted when it hatches into a lovable dragon! They name the dragon Pegasus, and raise him for a little while, but their father the king decides that Pegasus should be set free once he is old enough to survive on his own. Dayshawn and Kameela are sad to see Pegasus go, but they are destined to meet him again when their need is greatest! The playful color illustrations add a heartwarming touch to this gentle parable of loyalty and friendship.
