Children of the 80’s certainly must remember the pink dragon Serendipity books! This book series is best known to me for having unusual creatures and softcover books with fun covers with bright colors. (They all also had morals.) The books were written by Stephen Cosgrove and illustrated by Robin James.

They were written from the late 70’s, through the 80’s and into the 90’s.

You can buy older books for around $20 on Amazon, while new copies go for $100 or more.
