The Dragon on my Patio  

Written for her son Jaime, The Dragon on my Patio is written by Agnes Zalewski; it is her first children’s book. Inspired by their adventures at the family vacation home on the island of Kauai, The Dragon on my Patio is about the colourful and charming animals that regularly come to visit their Hawaiian garden. Allegorically, the book is about Agnes’s later-in-life journey into motherhood and the comfort, joy, and companionship she has found in, and with, her son.
