If you’re looking for a book that will capture every eye in the room, this is the one. It’s a funny and inventive story about a boy who endlessly asks mom for a dog until one day she tells him, no dog but sure, he can have a dragon if he can find one. There just happens to be a pet-sized dragon waiting for him at the local soda fountain and that’s when the problems begin. He is a messy, mischievous, fire-breathing imp who tries the boy’s patience. Worst of all he just won’t leave. The scenes are so improbable kids will laugh at the goofiness of the dragons antics. Made even more hilarious by the understated, retro style art. In the end the dragon leaves alright, but just wait until you see who shows up to replace him.
