The title is intriguing.
The title is definitely intriguing. The first page is well written and will elicit a chuckle. The rest of it is what I would expect from a good elementary school student writer - not something I want to pay money for. It was trying to make a point that is currently in fashion, but comes across preachy without any real support.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Don't be fooled by the title
I picked this book out because of it's catchy title. The illustrations were beautiful with great colors and detail. I read about half of it to my 3 year old and had to put it down. (i promptly threw it out!) There were horrible depictions of a shackled dragon on more than 3 pages and the threat of beheadings. My child has been wielding toys like an ax ever since! I just can't understand how this would be appropriate for any child under the age of 8, if that. Although the tone of the book was childlike, the themes in some of the pictures were increasingly sadistic and adult-themed. Shame on the author for taking such liberties with a book I can find on the toddler shelves at my local library. Thumbs down!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
