I enjoyed There’s a Dragon in Your Book more than this one, probably in part because I discovered it first and, well, she was a cute baby dragon! The monster in this book is cute too and I loved that this book was also interactive. I’m partial to monsters though so I wasn’t overly clear on why we didn’t want him in our book. I would prefer to help a baby dragon than scare a monster.
Nevertheless, I tried to shake him out, tickle his feet and blow him away. I admit I felt bad for the little guy when he became dizzy and scared, but it all works out in the end. Kids will enjoy the funny expressions on the monster’s face as he’s spun, wiggled and tilted all over the pages.
