Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A lost baby dragon is looking for a place to fit in. First, he tries to convince a witch that he would be a better companion than her cat, but he is too heavy to travel on her broom. The knight that he approaches turns out not to be so brave as he takes off running through the castle. A princess sleeping on a huge stack of mattresses complains when his muddy paws mess up her dress. He decides to ask the King and Queen for help, but they hide behind their thrones when they see him coming. Everyone thinks he is too scary. He wanders out of the castle in misery and sits alone on a rock. Just then, someone comes along who will love him just right. His mommy! A small reddish dragon with multicolored dots frolics through the pages in cartoon-like illustrations that feature children in all the starring roles. Young readers will recognize that that the baby dragon is not the least bit scary and will enjoy his humorous antics. When the huge mother dragon gives her son a hug and flies away, all will rejoice. This is another good read aloud for young children. 2004, Orchard/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 6.
—Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
Kirkus Reviews
A sweet polka-dotted dragon just wants to cuddle-"Who wants a dragon? A lost baby dragon, alone in the night?"-but everyone he meets runs away in fear. Even though he's pink and very cute, he still manages to knock a witch from her broom, frighten a knight, muddy a princess's gown, and give a king and queen reason to hide behind their thrones. When even a fairy refuses his pleas, he begins to despair. But flying in from high in the sky is the one who can love him the best: his mother. Cuddled in her arms, the little dragon falls asleep contented. Whimsical, brightly colored pastel drawings accompany the rhythmic verses, lending an easy read-aloud feature to a story that is sure to inspire a bedtime cuddle. Endearing. (Picture book. 3-6)

Meet the Author


James Mayhew was born in Stamford, England and graduated from the Maidstone College of Art in 1987, with first class honors. He is a prolific and renowned illustrator who hopes to peak young children’s interest in music and art. He is enthusiastic about his subjects and this passion is apparent in his work.

Mayhew’s first children’s book was Katie’s Picture Show. He developed this subject into a successful children’s series about a young museumgoer who is able to step into paintings and learn about the artists and their eras. Other titles in this series are Katie and Mona Lisa, Katie and the Sunflowers, and Katie Meets the Impressionists. His other books include The Secret Garden, which Kirkus Reviews called “a breathtaking…masterful homage.” He has also illustrated titles for several writers including Elisabeth Beresford and Joyce Dunbar.

In 1994, Mayhew received the New York Times Book Award for his illustrations in The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams. He has sold his artwork worldwide and exhibited it throughout Hertfordshire, in London, Cambridge, Paris and New York.

    Highly recommended

    Who wants a dragon? tells the story of a lonely pink dragon lost in the night with no one to love or cuddle with him. As you follow the story of this brave baby dragon you will laugh and smile as he scares the wits out of whomever he comes across. The story is simple, yet well written with a rhyme scheme you'll love. The illustrations are an interesting combination of bright, calm colors and a unique painting style that you will easily remember and catch your attention. This is a wonderful story I would recommend reading to kids. It will help them understand they will never be alone in this world and no one could ever love you or be there for you as much as your mom will.
