Me and My Dragon
by David Biedrzycki
Ages 4-7 36 pages Charlesbridge July 2011 Hardcover    

With big eyes, fluttery wings, pointy tail and fire engine-red scales, the little dragon featured in this picture book is adorable. The boy who narrates this cute story explains why he wants a pet dragon and how he would care for one.

Fire-breathing dragons, no matter their size, can be a little tricky to handle, but the boy has thought it through carefully. He offers a series of tips and special warnings on how to care for such an unusual pet.

From teaching the little fellow how to fly to enjoying outdoor activities with him, the boy touches all the bases as he explains the ins and outs of dragon care. Of course, it’s important to make sure your dragon has lots of exercise and always reassure him with plenty of hugs. Also, never, never feed him broccoli—and make sure you read to him every night. Oh, keep a fire extinguisher handy too, in case your dragon has an “accident.”

Children four and older will love the cartoonish illustrations in Me and My Dragon—and if you’re planning on getting a dragon, you’d better make sure you read this first!
