This Book is NOT about Dragons by Shelley Moore Thomas
Illustrated by Fred Koehler
Publisher: Boyds Mills Press
Publication Date: September 13th 2016
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars


Publisher's description

Meet a mouse narrator who stubbornly insists that this book contains absolutely no dragons—not even a claw nor a flame nor any large, pointy scales. Readers will know better—and enjoy being in on the joke—as a flock of dragons chase the mouse to the very end of the book within the book. Suspense builds humorously as the energetic text insists there are no dragons in this book, leading to a clever, unexpected ending. Clever artwork by Fred Koehler provides fun scenes to linger on and details to discover over multiple readings.


My Review

This book is hilarious. My 9yo daughter adored it and giggled uproariously the whole way through. I actually didn't get to read it to her... she insisted on reading it to me with the greatest of gusto. On each page, our delusional hero gets more and more insistent there are NO DRAGONS in this book! Miss R enjoyed pointing out all the evidence to the contrary and all the other hidden fun within its pages. We are a dragon loving family and this book is a new favorite among dragon-themed books for us.

Miss R's Review

It was a very funny book. I suggest it to lots of kids who like funny books. I really loved reading the book. It sounded really funny so I read it to Mom. It was one of the best books I have ever read.
