Wheras the last book, The Dragon of Lonely Island was a collection of stories with various life lessons for the three children, this book is a bit more focused.

This a children's book, clean, no bad language, no violence, or sex, kindle. The second book on the 'Lonely Island' series does a delightful job of showing life lessons in a wonderful setting. The dragon has three heads and three stories to tell, Hanna, Zacrey, and Sarah Emily have wonderful adventures with Fafnyr, the three-headed dragon.

My 8 year old son loves this story. He read it in class and came home asking if he could buy it for his kindle. Of course, I would never say no about reading. Thanks for writing a book that is so engaging and makes children want to read. Age appropriate and exciting is a hard combination some times especially for little boys.

This book was well written. I just wanted the dragon to do what dragons do--breath fire and eat people. This three-headed dragon was too well mannered, baked bread, and was a vegetarian. Good Grief. Much like wussy vampires that only drink animal blood.

I liked this book. It was a cute read and would be great for children of all ages. I learned that just beacuse something seems like it may be bad dose not mean that it will still turn out that way.
