Katie Beagle has a new summer job. But babysitting kids isn't the same as babysitting a dragon with special needs and a sassy, disabled toy lamb with a BIG personality. Katie quickly learns that believing in magic seems much easier than believing in herself (especially when a picnic turns into a big mess). But after a sudden sewing emergency teaches Katie a lesson in self-reliance, she's inspired to make a special gift for her new magical friend. After all, it's going to be a long summer, and NO lamb should ever be without some REALLY good play clothes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: D. Byron Patterson.
