This is a wonderful book series for kids that want to work toward reading chapter books but are not quiet there yet. Every other page has a beautiful illustration next to a page that is not overwhelming with text.

Out of all the dragons in the land of Weezalana, Dragonlin is the only one who can not breath fire. Tries and he tries but all for not. One day he is given some wonderful advise to simply believe in himself. Dragonlin gets a bit side tracked believing in the impossible though and more...more
Saccharine story lines and blindingly cute illustrations are exactly why I like the Serendipity Books. Little Dragolin struggles to learn how to breathe fire and his adorable little armadillo friend offers some sage advice. Honestly, if you're in need of sage advice I would go elsewhere, but if you want to relax with some awww-worthy illustrations, it's the perfect book. They need to make Serendipity plushies.
I absolutely love this book the illustrations are wonderful and it has caused me to collect a series by the autor and the illustrator Robin James. Story is lovingly told and I recommend it for all children of all ages!
This is a smart children's book; it isn't afraid to use a sophisticated vocabulary while being heartwarming. A little anticlimactic, but still a very sweet story with beautiful illustrations.
Great little inspirational book for the kids into fantasy, dragons and basic awesomeness.

Moral of the tale: You can be your best if you really believe in yourself.

Preachy and too cute, these books each have a moral. Sometimes, however, these are the only books to help explain a difficult issue to kids.
An nice story about believing in yourself. The illustrations of the dragon are particularly cute.
