Picture Book Saturday: Duncan, the Story Dragon

Duncan the Dragon loves to read. When he reads a story, his imagination catches fire! Unfortunately…so does his book.

Fire breath is great for roasting marshmallows, but it’s not so great for reading. Duncan just wants to get to those two wonderful words, like the last sip of a chocolate milk shake: The End. Will he ever find out how the story ends?

I dare anyone to read Duncan, the Story Dragon and not fall in love. If you can't tell, the illustrations are adorable and full of whimsy. Every page is full of cuteness. As I followed Duncan on his quest to find someone willing to read a book to him, I could not help but smile. With every no he received, I felt his disappointment. Any reader will be able to relate to Duncan's plight; it is one we all share-- trying to find someone that loves books as much as we do! When Duncan does find a very surprising companion that shares his love of books, his story really takes off! Get ready for a grand journey with Duncan and his friend.
