Picture Books - Who Wants a Dragon?
Who Wants A Dragon? by James Mayhew and illustrated by Lindsey Gardiner 2004
Need a quick and fun story to read? Then go grab Who Wants a Dragon. The book is filled with colorful artwork that amusingly expresses a little lost dragon’s journey through a simple yet charming rhythmic storyline. The little dragon is looking for some companionship and someone to love and cuddle with. He meets various characters as he enters a kingdom (many appear to resemble notables from well-known fairytale stories), but unfortunately each for some reason or another rejects the little dragon. But, just when the little dragon begins to lose hope the right companion who will love and cuddle him the most appears. I would recommend this book for toddlers on up to 2nd grade. In addition, it works well as a read aloud. As a side note Mayhew is also the author of the Katie books such as Katie Meets The Impressionists.
