    “I Thought I Saw A Dragon Late Last Night” is a simple story about the wonder of a child’s vivid imagination. Follow a young boy as he goes in search of an elusive Dragon. Is the Dragon real or imaginary???

    Clayton Liotta is an Author, Illustrator, Cartoonist, and Film Maker with quite a background. As a boy, a band of gypsies found him living under a squashed cabbage leaf. They whisked him away, and made him part of their roving caravan, where he learned the ancient art of broom making. He spent countless hours weaving straw into brooms and listening to stories told by tribal elders. Sitting around the campfire, Clayton was fascinated by the gypsies' ancient tales. Soon, he found himself sketching in the dirt with leftover pieces of straw. Once they saw his interpretive drawings, the gypsies realized that they should preserve their unique stories on paper- along with Clayton's sketches. An illustrator was born. Until now, Clayton's work was known only in gypsy caravans. (And how many gypsy caravans do you see these days???) Clayton has since left the simple gypsy lifestyle for bright lights, big cities, cheeseburgers, fries, and cable TV.....Where he lives quietly!


    I Thought I Saw A Dragon Late Last Night is a wonderful demonstration of a child’s overactive imagination at bedtime. Certain he saw a dragon; a boy decides to search everywhere to find it. He looks high and low, including at a beach and a haunted house. Will the boy ever find this elusive dragon, or is it just his imagination running amuck?

    Children from the ages of 5 and up will enjoy the rhythm and rhyme of this 36 page picture book. They will also like the illustrations and how the dragon always appears in the most unlikely of places.
