Virgil is a dragon with human parents who are trying to raise him in an apartment in NYC in 1920. Rose and Henry are college students raising Virgil. They are learning as they go. So far they've learn Virgil is fascinated by the Christmas tree and that does not go well. He is also eating a lot and they need to find out why and where can they put him to sleep.
What an imaginative, creative, interesting story! I loved it. It was fun to hear Virgil's thoughts and how he communicates. I liked Rose and Henry even though they were very much like newly married couples defining their positions and territories in the early days of their marriage. I have got to read the earlier books in this series to find out how the three of them ended up together. What fun!
