This is the story of Silk Peony, a magnificent dragon who is rented by a powerful mandarin for the annual New Year’s parade. Based on legend, this is the story of how the dragon came to lead the New Year’s parade. The traditional story and whimsical illustrations of dragons are sure to appeal to young children and the young at heart.

This book might do well for Book Time, since it has dragons in it. I liked the different "problems" some of the dragons had. And I liked Mrs. Ming's persistance. I think the dragons would keep the attention and make this book a bit more different than others I've been coming across.
