SummaryAdd a Summary
Some children long for a pet cat. Others would choose a dog. The little boy in David Biedrzycki’s latest picture book, however, has his heart set on a pet dragon.
Some planning for such an unusual pet is definitely necessary.
Firstly, where can you find a dragon? Secondly, is a fire-breathing or a non-fiery dragon the best choice? Thirdly, do you want a one, two or three-headed dragon?
One of the most important considerations of all is to choose a dragon that will fit in your house (as opposed to a house that will fit your dragon!)
Be sure to buy your dragon a collar and leash so that you can take him for a walk each day. He’ll need some special dragon toys, too.
Here’s some more useful advice: give your dragon lots of room at home and keep a fire extinguisher handy. Don’t forget to teach your dragon how to fly. Most importantly, hug him every day and read to him each night.
If you are lucky enough to “own” a dragon, you likely don’t need to worry about bullies bothering you, or about having to eat your brussel sprouts - dragons love them, apparently (brussel sprouts, that is, not bullies).
David Biedrzycki’s clever tongue-in-cheek “instruction guide” also provides tips about dragon discipline and diet. With its colourful, goofy illustrations, it’s a “must-read” for any child who dreams of owning a pet dragon!
