Where did that little piece of sand in the corner of your eye come from? That's easy the Sandman.It all started a long time ago when a tiny man named Tor discovered that a dragon's scale held magical powers. Ground dragon scales make magic sand that Tor sprinkles in the eyes of children to help them fall asleep. But how does he get the scales to make the special sand? He has to venture into the lair of a dragon, and that's no easy feat! This imaginative telling of the legend of the Sandman combined with fantastical, illuminating pictures will be enjoyed by the whole family."
