This children's book is sure to spark imagination!

If you're a parent who wants to inspire your kids to role-play, then this book covers many common RPG words with beautiful illustrations that help the little people see how role-playing may look.

An excellent book to teach little geeks/nerds what they'll need to know for a life of churning through 100+ page rule books :)

The art work is very cute and the poetry is, while not perfect, easy to read and remember and is likewise adorable.

I ordered a couple of these and the accompanying activities books for some friends of mine who have small children.

I backed this book on Kickstarter because I thought it sounded fun, and it came with an activity book. It was such a quick and easy read, and I can see that it's perfect for geek parents with young children. The artwork is adorable and I'm glad to have this in my personal library.

My son and I love this book. We read it together almost every day. It was the first book where he seemed to really pay attention to the pictures and smile as I read it. As enthusiastic RPG players, my husband and I look forward to sharing this hobby with our son as he grows up; this is a very positive introduction to that world.

It's a cute way of getting a little one into the ideas of RPGs, with a mind on the positive aspects of it - friendship, imagination, and teamwork.

Beautiful illustrations, nice rhymes. Great little book.
