Do Not Bring Your Dragon to the Library - Julie Gassman, Andy Elkerton

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I saw this one, and, naturally, as I love books, libraries and also dragons, had to read this book. And I am delighted that I was accepted to read this book.

This was a delightful little tale about why you shouldn’t bring your dragon with you to the library. There are various hilarious reasons why it is impossible for your dragon to come. They take a lot of space, or they will knock things over, or well… the list goes on. I laughed so hard at a lot of the reasons, I could just imagine it happening for real.

The rhyme (since the book is told in that) was pretty decent, at times I think it might be a bit too much for the age group to understand, and at times it felt a bit forced. But generally it was pretty fun.

The art/illustrations were nicely done. I love how the dragons were drawn, and it was fun to see not only one kid with a dragon, but various kids with various dragons. The art was also really colourful and fun to look at.

However, there was one thing that I didn’t like, and that also seemed to be against the rules or that was said to be a problem, yet was accepted as a solution.

But all in all, this is a book I would recommend. It is fun, it is playful, and who can resist books about dragons and libraries?
