Spread the Word Excerpt:

The sun peaked through the buds and branches of the trees, slowly changing color from orange into a deep red.  The warm glow of the sunset filled the enchanted forest.  The dragon admired the surrounding beauty and thought, “This is Ahway Island.” Taking a deep dragon breath in and out the dragon basked in the peace and then realized it was about time for the sparkling train to finish one of its routes.  Now would be a great time to share the name of the island with the train, if all the passengers had left, of course.


As the dragon stepped out of the cozy cave Rebel and Riley the raccoons scampered past. They were on their way to meet Rob raccoon for a little bit of mischief.  With a sigh and a deep dragon breath in and out the dragon shared that the island’s name was Ahway Island. With another deep dragon breath in and out, the dragon asked the raccoons to share the name with anyone they met.  Riley and Rebel nodded happily and off they went.  The dragon shared the name of the island with Mya the mouse, Tad and Tanner the Toads, and Carrie the cardinal before reaching the sparkling train’s forest platform.
