At the end, to the question of "tell me your dragon", my daughter replied, "A love dragon that lives in my heart". Only a great book could elicit something like that. Read to your kids! Even more than you already do!

Dragons come in many forms, and are represented in most cultures across the globe. This title celebrates not only their variety, but the gentler side of these mythical creatures. Humans who interact with them tell us their point of view, they explain the wonder, and experience they have with their own personal dragon. One likes flowers, another is tiny with rainbow wings, while yet another is a sea-dragon. While their words only adequately portray the magic, the art does a much better job. Watercolours gracefully decorate these pages, ranging from subtle greens, to brilliant reds depending on the dragon and the region it lives in. The one let down is that proportions are not always accurate. Each dragon unfurls from the left page onto the right, while any humans are usually on the right. With no linear story, the author ends it by asking about "your dragon".
