You Don’t Want a Dragon!

Our protagonist wishes (much to the narrator’s continued chagrin) for a pet dragon. Though initially thrilled, the kid quickly discovers that dragons aren’t quite as awesome as they originally thought. From the scooting to the digging to the fire-breathing, our Kid is dismayed that they still haven’t found their perfect pet. Little do they know, that pet might just be right around the corner...


"Bite-sized bits of second-person narrative share space on roomy pages with bright, simply
drawn...cartoon scenes." ―Booklist

"[T]he chaos of dragon ownership is comically clear. The tidy minimalism of the digital art makes the mess and destruction all the more alarming, and the unicorn/hamster mutants of the close are utterly irresistible." ―BCCB

"[S]illy and bright with slapstick humor [...] this book's subject matter has perennial--and
enaging--interest." ―School Library Journal
