Did a real dragon pass by on Dragon Day? The dragon's tooth on the path looks real enough, but who does it really belong to?
Children's Literature - Sharon OliverThis very short, five chapter, forty-page chapter book from the "Read-it!" series for early readers is perfect for young readers who love dinosaurs. Little T and his dinosaur family are preparing to celebrate Dragon Day, when the community dresses in dragon costumes and tells jokes in remembrance of the defeat of a great dragon. Little T decides, in the great tradition of the boy who cried wolf, to scare the people into believing a real dragon is on the loose. The tables are turned when a real dragon actually appears. Fortunately, the dragon turns out to be just a baby in need of a little assistance in finding his mother. Little T comes up with the perfect solution; mom appears and the dinosaurs discover they have little to fear from the dragon family after all. The pen-and-ink illustrations take up a considerable amount of page space, but the addition of speech balloons help carry the story along. This is a nice selection if you need to augment your beginning chapter book collection, if a bit on the pricey side.
