What did you like about the book? Written as a “parenting guide” to new dragon ownership, this book guides the reader through seven steps to help your dragon should they catch a cold. The text is a repetition of Step #, Fact, Tip, and discussion and goes through all seven steps to get your dragon back to good health. Hilarious (and at time gross) illustrations will be a joy to little readers. Bright and colorful, this is a fun, silly book.

Anything you didn’t like about it? No

To whom would you recommend this book? Story hour (best for older, as it is long), dragons, sick, sympathy, responsibility

Who should buy this book? Public libraries, preschool, elementary school

Where would you shelve it? Picture books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
