Contributor Bio(s): Laurence Yep is a two-time Newbery Honor winner, Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award nominee, and winner of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his substantial and lasting contribution to the world of children’s literature. So it is only fitting that the famed prairie writer herself makes a brief appearance in Winnie’s story. Yep is the author of more than sixty books, including the American Girl of the Year stories about Mia and Isabelle.
 
Joanne Ryder has her own ties to Laura Ingalls Wilder. She helped edit West from Home: Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, San Francisco, 1915. Already in love with the city, Ingalls’s letters introduced Ryder to the 1915 San Francisco World’s Fair, providing the perfect backdrop for Winnie and Miss Drake’s adventures. In her storied career, Ryder has published more than seventy books and received numerous awards for her nature writing and poetry.

Dragon Miss Drake and her human "pet" Winnie travel back in time to the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair to meet great-granddad Caleb and solve a jewel heist. A mischievous wish-granting imp complicates matters. The growing dragon-human teamwork, San Franciscospecific history, a nicely integrated fantasy framework, and light comedy combine for a cheery continuation of the series.
