Character Design and concept for a children’s picture book.
This friendly, green-fingered dragon lives on his own in a sweet woodland lodge away from the other animals. He much prefers to be by himself, although his non-speaking companion often accompanies him.
After being invited to a group picnic in the village, he gets increasingly anxious and notices some unusual things happening to him. He worries and worries, his stomach grumbles, smoke begins to rise from his nose and then… FIRE escapes from his mouth!
This story aims to show how feelings of anxiety can sometimes disguise themselves as stomach pains and outbursts of unintended or bottled up feelings. It shows that feeling this way is normal for some people and that you can learn to control those emotions. It’s about being brave and not worrying what other people think, because they will be supportive and understanding
