The title has been changed to "Muffin Dragon" no thanks to the way words are used nowadays so I was glad that when I ordered my two lots of Serendipity books that I had the original title. This was one I didn't read as a child so it was new to me.

The Serendipity dragons seem to be in a league of their own with them mostly being peaceful, loving and adorable. This muffin-eating dragon is different from them for he isn't against throwing his weight around and demanding his rights even though the...more

Recommends it for: Any child.
A great book that brings up the subject of sharing and encourages kids to be generous and considerate of others.

The Muffin Muncher was the one book out of the Serendity series that I really liked as a kid. Most of them were too preachy for my tastes. But this one has some humor to it. A poor kingdom that lives hand to mouth by selling its wonderful muffins is over-run by a muffin munching dragon! What will they do to survive? What will the dragon do when the muffins run out?
Serendipity books are great young children's books. This one is no exception. My father gave a copy of this to my little sister years ago, and I was always a little envious. Now I have my own copy to read to my daughter.
Check out my blog, Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing for my thoughts and memories of the Serendipity series!

This book teaches children about working together. the book teaches children to help.

Learning Extension: the children can work together to prepare meal time or bake cookies.
not as wonderful as I remember from MY childhood, but enjoyed the cute purple PJs the dragon wears!
Again, another childhood read that stands out as being memorable in a positive way.
Cosgrove's are my favorite. I've been waiting 25 years to read these to my kids!
Fun read, nice flow, think it through, there is usually a workable solution!
One of my favorite books when I was a kid.
