Duncan the Story Dragon

Reviewed by:

Dragons and reading. What’s not to love? In this light picture book, Duncan loves stories, but he has one problem: he has never gotten to the end of a story. He reads as much as he can, but unfortunately, just as the book gets exciting, he gets excited. Being a dragon, this means that he just HAS to blow fire. As you can imagine, this means his book goes up in flames. Duncan’s solution is to ask various woodland creatures to read the books to him, but all any of them can see is DRAGON, and they decline. Finally, he finds someone to read to him, and rather than being the end, it is the beginning. The simple and cartoonish depictions will appeal to young readers. K-2
