STORY BEHIND THE STORE

Santa Monica inspired children’s and history books by author and publisher, Jim Harris.

From Creator and Founder, Jim Harris, Author and Publisher, “Stella and I conceived of this story over several bedtime discussions about how she could build up the courage to ride the Sea Dragon ride at Santa Monica Pier’s Pacific Park amusement park...She always had her eye on the ominous dragon, wondering and wishing. When she was eight years old, she finally gathered the nerve to confront and ride the Sea Dragon, and it has been her favorite ride ever since!”
