Do you need a fun and easy book to red aloud for your kids? I’d suggest reading Dragon Was Terrible by Kelly DiPucchio. It’s a silly book about a mythical creature that little ones will definitely enjoy. (Actually, even I liked it!)
Dragon was terrible. He SCRIBBLED IN BOOKS (Which is definitely terrible!), and even spit on cupcakes! The king asked the knights and villagers to help tame the crazy beast for a great prize. People far and wide try their hardest – but a young boy may have enough determination to outsmart the dragon. At the end of the book, the king gives out the reward and it may not be what readers are expecting!
I really liked this book because it was an easy read and a good book to just relax with and it’s about friendship. It is also by an author I not only have met but have also interviewed on my blog, Kelly DiPucchio. She also written several other books, including Grace For President, which I also reviewed.
I loved the illustrations by Greg Pizzoli because they helped set a hilarious, silly, tone to the book. In fact, some parts I was laughing out loud! I like how the author can write books for people way younger than her age, and write in a silly way that kids will love.
I would recommend this book to readers six and up. As said before, it is a great read aloud book and a great addition to your home library. I can also see it in the classroom, too. If you like books about magical kingdoms and mythical creatures, be sure to pick this one up. You won’t want to put it down.
I really enjoyed this book! I rate it four out of four roses!!
