By the same pair that gave us There’s a Monster in Your Book comes There’s a Dragon in Your Book. This time there’s a cute green dragon for your little one to interact with! This is the kind of book that is best read with a companion (either a parent or a younger sibling) for the story to really shine. The book is currently available as a hard cover or digital version but will probably be a bigger hit in the hard copy. The pages are large and glossy, as well as being colorful, but not too overwhelming. The words on the page are large and are printed in a fun font that will delight younger readers and is plenty legible for children who want to steer the adventure.

If you’ve already picked up and read There’s a Monster in Your Book then you already know what you’re getting into and for older readers who may remember the Sesame Street title, The Monster at the End of This Book, featuring the loveable Grover, this book pretty much follows a similar formula. I can’t say if it’s worth grabbing both titles, as some children will certainly enjoy the new adventure, while others may find it a bit too repetitive. Even so, there’s now quite a few options so that kids can enjoy their favorite monster/dragon interaction.
