Love the illustrations!

My favorite hint is for defeating a multi-headed dragon - juggle a cooked chicken, and the heads will get all tangled up.

A random children's book I saw at the library and thought might be worth a read since I like dragons. Unfortunately a bit disappointing.

Good for preschool and older kid storytimes.

This is a funny book about dragons...and what is most funny is that it says, there are no such things are dragons...so defeating them is unnecessary but.....just in case they do exist some helpful hints are how to combat them..

What an amazingly fun book. The story is fantastic and really gets down to the level of a small child. Even my older son thought it was cute. The pictures are delightful and pull you into the story.
