Recent Book Review:
Joan Harris’ tale of a prince and a princess who go on a journey to capture dragons will intrigue children’s hearts with fact and fantasy. The dragon’s human characteristics of barbecuing, singing, dancing, and playing a kazoo make Billy Joe Bob, the dragon, even more loveable. But wait, there’s one dragon characteristic that will absolutely grab hold of children’s hearts, and it’s even more unusual than his human qualities. Art, creative writing, and discussion activities at the end of the book make for imaginative interaction between child and story. A Princess, A Prince, And A Dragon will be enjoyed by children who dream of being princes and princesses, and by children who have never given that a thought. Elementary age children will take pleasure reading, imagining, and creating adventures of their own after reading A Princess, A Prince, And A Dragon (primary grades).
