Basic Plot: A baby dragon learns to fly in secret and helps his family win the big dragon flying contest.

This was a cute bit of fluff. There wasn't much to it as far as story. It seemed pretty standard. Some of the illustrations were pretty funny, and they were all consistently good.

3.5 - The best thing about Super-Dragon, IMO, is the comic book format. Being that this is the first childrens books in this format that I've ever read - and quite possibly the first book in this format ever that I've read - I don't know how much this is done. I'd have to guess that Kroll isn't the first but Julia and I read a lot. So much that we can't walk out of the library without more than one person commenting on the amount of books we're carrying. So much that no one comes to our house, s ...more

My " in a nutshell" summary...

This is the story of a little dragon who wants to learn to fly.

My thoughts after reading this book...

Hmmm...this book was written sort of in a cartoon format and was simply the story of a little dragon who wanted to learn how to fly. And so...he did!
He worked with a little bird and secretly learned to master the art of flying. His specialty was doing crazy eight's!

What I enjoyed about this book...

I liked the message and the illustrations.

Another story in which a youngster's possible contribution to the family is discounted, but he eventually proves them wrong. The pencil, ink and photoshop illustrations are quite good, sort of comic book-ish, with dialogue in dialogue balloons. But the illustrations are not in comic book panels, they cover the entire page. In this case, the littlest dragon can't fly yet, and so will not be entered into the dragon flying competition; but little dragon decides to learn to fly in secret and ...more

Pros: No violence!

Cons: Title is exclamation from crowd when Drago flies up to perform in competition with family, but in this book all dragons can fly so the superpower isn't obvious. Drago sneaks out to learn how to fly behind his parents' backs after they tell their young child to wait until next year.

Great for younger kids. A message of determination. The dragon and the illustrations will certainly enthrall kids. The graphic novel type format will also be appealing.

Fun story with wonderful artwork. An excellent dragon book for kids 3-5, especially with older (competitive) sibs.
