This Book Is Not About Dragons



This Book Is Not About Dragons
Written by Shelley Moore Thomas
Illustrated by Fred Koehler
Boyds Mills Press, 2016. Picture Book.

A mouse in a bow-tie tries to convince us that there are no dragons in this book. However, the illustrations behind him tell us otherwise--dragons are all over this book and they are causing devastation everywhere they go! You can try to convince the mouse that the dragons are there but I’m not sure he’ll listen. You’ll have to try it to find out!

 This is a fun and colorful book that breaks the fourth wall with hilarious results. Although the dragons are not prominently displayed throughout most of the book, dragon lovers will still get their fill of the winged beasts. A good choice for PreK and older who want a funny picture book.
